    1795 ASYLUM Edge Liberty & Security Halfpenny

    1795 1/2P Washington Liberty & Security Halfpenny, ASYLUM Edge MS61 Brown NGC. Baker-31A. An elusive variety of this popular Washington issue, much scarcer than the usually encountered LONDON edge inscription. The present piece displays ample faded red color throughout the legends and near the outlines of devices. Only minor marks are encountered, and the strike is reasonable. As of (12/05), the sole NGC-certified ASYLUM Edge example. Listed on page 80 of the 2006 Guide Book.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B7T, PCGS# 761)
