Northeast Numismatics has purchased an unusual and rare mule pattern. It's Peck #1023, which is a 1790 ½D in Proof 66 Brown NGC. It has an estimated mintage of five pieces struck and is the first one we've ever seen of this type.
It was struck by the Soho Mint in England in 1790, and was designed by J.P. Droz who was a French medalist, designer and sculpturer.
This mule depicts a clothed portrait of Britannia on the obverse and a nude Britannia on the reverse.
It is struck in bronze copper with a plain edge. It is in gem proof condition and is a very unusual mule.
