Lot Description
1793 1/2 C VF35 PCGS. C-2, B-2, R.3. The second of four 1793 half cent varieties in both the Cohen and Breen references, the C-2 half cent is considered the second issue in the emission sequence for the date. Minor abrasions and rim bumps are present on this otherwise pleasing medium brown example. Some of the surface marks appear to be lamination defects present when it was struck. A few splashes of lighter orange-tan and darker steel are evident on each side. The commercial sharpness of this piece is finer than the PCGS grade suggests. MRB Fine 12.
