    AU 1795 North Wales Halfpenny
    Plain Edge, Baker-34

    1795 1/2P Washington North Wales Halfpenny, Plain Edge AU50 PCGS. Baker-34, R.4. An attractive chocolate-brown piece, slightly deeper mahogany toning is noted near 6 o'clock on the obverse, and a glimpse of ruby verdigris is at 4:30 on the reverse. A few faint slide marks on the left obverse field, but refreshingly unmarked overall. Softly struck in the centers, this is usual for the issue. A circulated appearance on new pieces was desired, to enhance their acceptance in commerce. Obverse field die polish lines confirm little actual wear. Listed on page 80 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 50, 3 finer (4/08).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2005), lot 5045, which realized $3,738.
    From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.
