1795 Liberty and Security Halfpenny / Irish Halfpenny Mule. Baker-31M, D&H Dublin-9, W-11020. LONDON Edge. AU-55 (PCGS). A predominantly olive-copper example with slight marbling of autumn-brown evident as the surfaces rotate under a light. Well centered in strike, although the upper left obverse exhibits scant denticulation, all major design elements are bold despite a touch of softness in the centers. Tiny obverse edge nick before the date, light scuff within the lower right of the shield on the reverse, otherwise the surfaces are smooth in hand with a hard satin texture. The reverse, used on the Liberty and Security halfpence, is in a slightly earlier state than the Birmingham edged pieces, with the arc die crack present but not as bold. It is uncertain whether these saw circulation only in the British Isles or if some may have come to America with those that bore the Washington portrait obverse. From Kagins ANA Auction of August 1977, lot 59. Lot tag included.
