Undated (1795) Washington North Wales Halfpenny. 2 Stars. Baker-35, Breen-1298, W-11190. Copper. VF-20 PCGS. CAC.

Also known in brass. Deep chocolate-brown with olive highlights. Scattered tiny marks can be seen under low magnification, but this coin presents a good face at arm’s length. Struck from the usual cracked obverse die. Obverse weakness present at RGEIV and GTON on this specimen. Reverse a trifle weak at WA, otherwise well-struck in the periphery, including at the all-important double star or cinquefoil pairs. The reverse crown is soft in detail, as is the lower right of the harp, those areas of the design being opposite Washington’s shoulder and his head respectively. It is thought that fewer than a dozen examples of this rarity can be accounted for today. This elusive Washington piece will attract specialists from near and far, so be prepared to tussle at bidding time if you envision bragging rights to this lot.
