The obverse of this first-year half cent is medium olive-brown with a few splashes of darker toning, while the reverse is combines deep steel-brown and mahogany, with lighter tan on several of the leaves, especially in the left branch.

The reverse has a scrape between HALF and CENT, with a few rim bruises and old scratches that are blended with the surrounding surface. Here is an opportunity for the early copper enthusiast to acquire a nicely detailed first-year half cent. Our EAC grade VF25.
