Description:
Rare Lettered Edge 1795 Washington
North Wales Halfpenny, Baker-34A, XF45
1795 1/2P Washington North Wales Halfpenny, Lettered Edge XF45 PCGS. Baker-34A, Breen-1296, R.7. The Lettered Edge variety (PAYABLE IN LANCASTER LONDON OR BRISTOL) is much rarer than the Plain Edge variety. A smooth chocolate-brown Halfpenny with the expected indifferent strike. Light wear on Washington's face and shoulder confirms brief circulation. Late in life dies exhibit breaks behind the head, at 6 o'clock, and from the second E in GEORGEIVS. The legend is fading into the field due to a sinking obverse die. Listed on page 80 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 1 in 45, 1 finer (3/08).
