    MS63 Brown LONDON Edge Baker-31
    1795 Liberty & Security Halfpenny

    1795 1/2P Washington Liberty & Security Halfpenny, LONDON Edge MS63 Brown PCGS. Ex: Picker. Baker-31, Breen-1260. 129.4 gn. In its Picker catalog appearance, the present piece was described by Stack's as having "fully lustrous surfaces with about 10% of the original mint red." Softly struck on the profile, the eagle's belly, and other areas where device highpoints oppose. Virtually void of post-strike marks, although trivial chatter from the planchet is present on the portrait. Exceptional quality for this generally circulated Washington issue. Listed on page 80 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 63 Brown, 0 finer (4/08).
    Ex: Richard Picker Collection (Stack's, 10/1984), lot 315.
    From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.
