    1795 1/2P Washington Grate Halfpenny, Large Buttons, Reeded Edge MS65 Brown NGC. Baker-29AA, Breen-1271. A second Gem example of this variety in our current offering. Despite the Brown designation, traces of mint red peek out from the peripheries and protected areas of this velvety, smooth Gem piece, with chocolate centers. Scrutiny under a loupe reveals distraction-free surfaces. Listed on page 79 of the 2007 Guide Book.

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