Scarce "PLAIN EDGE" 1795 Washington Halfpenny Type
1795 Washington "Liberty and Security" Halfpenny. Plain Edge. Baker-31C, W-11000. Improperly Cleaned. NGC graded About Uncirculated Details.
This scarce "PLAIN EDGE" type is well struck for its issue and is exceptionally clean and free of detractions. The surfaces are hard and smooth, even chocolate in color having sharp rim edges. Lightly wiped perhaps over a century ago having some ultra-fine and hard to see underlying hairlines. A most impressive example of this major listed Guide Book type.
