    Description

    1795 1/2P Washington Grate Halfpenny, Large Buttons, Reeded Edge MS65 Brown NGC. Baker-29A or -29AA, W-10955, R.1. Baker lists two subvarieties that depend on the direction of the slanted reeding, but the encapsulation prevents ultimate classification. Despite the Brown designation, traces of faded red peek out from the peripheries and protected areas of this predominantly medium brown Gem. Satiny and sharply struck with smooth surfaces save for minor marks on the left obverse field. Listed on page 79 of the 2011 Guide Book.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2006), lot 77, which realized $1,725.


    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B7M, PCGS# 746)
