Lot Description
1793 1/2 C XF45 PCGS. C-2, B-2, R.3. The 1793 C-2 die marriage is scarce, as are all 1793 varieties, and it is perhaps the most challenging of the four varieties in higher grades. This lovely piece has mottled olive, tan, and steel-brown toning with a nicely centered strike and excellent eye appeal. Only a few minor handling marks are evident on each side, consistent with the grade. A thin crescent in the right obverse field actually appears much like an incomplete planchet punch, although prospective bidders may want to arrive at their own conclusion. MRB VF25.
