Lot Description
1793 1/2 C VF25 PCGS. CAC. C-2, B-2, R.3. Even dark-chocolate surfaces show traces of light golden-tan, especially at the upper obverse, outside the border beads. The surfaces show traces of green around the devices, with minor surface roughness on each side, although light enough that PCGS still assigned a grade for this piece. The strike is strong with considerable detail, finer than the numerical grade assigned, with PCGS certainly taking the surface condition into account. This example is nicely centered with full border beads on each side. The reverse is rotated about 30 degrees. MRB VF20. From The Oliver Collection.
