Description

1795 1/2P Washington North Wales Halfpenny, Plain Edge XF45 Brown NGC. Breen-1294 or 1295 depending on weight, which is not recorded on the NGC holder. This is Walter Breen's "First Evasion" issue. Breen described the North Wales issues as "the most mysterious of all Washington coppers." Nearly all known examples are very well worn, the present specimen being a wonderful exception. Smooth chocolate brown surfaces with only minor imperfections. Considerable weakness in the harp is immediately opposite the highest point of Washington's head, thus is primarily a problem with die alignment or design.(#770) (PCGS# 770)

Another major house refused the work stating it was too unique for the artist. Heritage saw that as an advantage!
