    1791 Washington Liverpool Halfpenny, AU58
    Ex: Garrett, Baker-17, W-10650

    1791 1/2 P Washington Liverpool Halfpenny, Copper AU58 PCGS. Baker-17, W-10650, Musante GW-19, R.6. Ex: Garrett. The 1791 Liverpool halfpenny is sometimes confused with the 1793 Ship halfpenny, but the former is much rarer. This lightly marked golden-brown representative shows the die rust and reverse breaks that are characteristic of the issue. The strike is sharp for the issue, with nearly complete definition on Washington's epaulets. An opportunity to acquire an example pedigreed to one of the most prestigious collections of early American coinage. Listed on page 93 of the 2019 Guide Book. Population: 3 in 58, 1 finer (5/18).
    Ex: Garrett Collection, Part IV (Bowers and Ruddy, 3/1981), lot 1708; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 750, which realized $25,300; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2017), lot 3041; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2017), 3713; Dallas Signature (Heritage, 12/2018), lot 3006.
