    Lettered Edge 1795 Grate Halfpenny

    1795 1/2P Washington Grate Halfpenny, Large Buttons, Lettered Edge MS62 Red and Brown PCGS. Baker-29. Not to be confused with the common Baker-29A reeded edge variety. The Rulau update of Fuld (1999) states "about 10 known." Substantial orange-red color fills the legends and outlines the devices. The fields and portrait have toned medium brown. A few wispy handling marks on the central reverse, and a small spot is noted between the bust and the AN in HUMANITY. The die cud on the F in FIRM suggests the lettered edge pieces were struck at a later time than the common reeded edge examples. Listed on page 79 of the 2006 Guide Book.
    From The Oak Collection of American Colonial Coinage.(#744)
