Copper. 28.2mm. Diagonally reeded (right) edge. Rarity-3. Small coat buttons. Dark chocolate brown. Smooth wear on the highest points of the devices. Well struck, but with weakness in the lower central reverse. This Grate cent - actually halfpenny - Baker 29D, was designed by Thomas Wyon and struck by James Good, both in Birmingham, England. The halfpenny was intended for English circulation, but has always been collected as part of the American Colonial series. D&H Middlesex 238b; Atkins Middlesex 201b; Rulau-E Non 12; WA. 1795.6
