Note: Half Pennies were last minted in the US in 1857.


The oak case with scuffs and nicks. Metal bracket attaching crest to case is corroded but functions. The hinges and coin slot are pitted with peeling in places. The glazed door is locked and there is no key. The interior looks clean and well-kept. There is some rubbing to the instructions on the lower left. The pull out coin 'safe' drawer is intact but elements of the locking system are missing and the the oak panel in front of it is loose and has a screw acting as a knob. In generally good condition. Structurally sound. There is no guarantee that this game will work. Not withstanding this report or any discussion concerning condition of a lot, all lots are offered and sold "as is" in accordance with our conditions of sale.
