Liberty & Security George Washington United States Arms Halfpenny 1795

The Red Book lists this token under Post-Colonial Issues, but prior to Federal Coinage.

The Whitman Encyclopedia of Colonial & Early American Coins lists this token under Early Washington Coins & Tokens.

Breen also lists it in his Encyclopedia, and Durst as well.

All list the token under the banner of United States Colonials and/or Pre-Federals. Yet these tokens are Conders; produced and also exchanged in commerce in England too.

For the Half Penny varieties, Whitman lists 4 different varieties; All but one with edge lettering. (Two other mulings exist, but with irrelevant obverse dies.)

The first three more common varieties are the following:

W-11005 - "ASYLUM" Edge: Baker-31A, Breen-1263, Fuld-WA.1795.1a
"AN ASYLUM FOR THE OPPRESS'D OF ALL NATIONS"
URS-6 (17-32 known specimens)

W-11010 - "BIRMINGHAM" Edge: Baker-31B, Breen-1261, Fuld-WA.1795.1b
"BIRMINGHAM REDRUTH & SWANSEA"
URS-7 (33-64 known specimens)

W-11015 - "LONDON" Edge: Baker-31, Breen-1260, Fuld-WA.1795.1
"PAYABLE AT LONDON LIVERPOOL, OR BRISTOL"
URS-6 (17-32 known specimens)

Finally, the plain edge, without edge lettering:

This is the rarest variety, with only 9-16 estimated in existence (URS-5). It is listed as D&H 1052, W-11000, Baker 31-C, Breen-1262, Fuld-WA.1795.1c.

Below please find an example of the plain edge variety from my cabinet.

Although this specimen clearly shows environmental pitting and wear, it has maintained beautiful coloring and patina, and is in Very Good-VG (British Grading) condition.

Given the plain edge variety's rarity, I'm glad to have it in cabinet



Thanks,

Cheetah

Brooklyn Bridge Medal
Struck in white metal with dies by George Lovett. 52mm which makes it a rather large medal. Reverse shows the sun over the Brooklyn bridge and the East river. Attribution is Douglas 7A.

Here's another. Miller Mass-55, the token is one of the originals that were struck in 1859. (Later mulings were struck in the 1867-71 period)

Mint state, and struck in copper, it is also cataloged as a Baker-560.



Thanks,
