Lot Description
1795 1/2 C Lettered Edge MS62 Brown PCGS. C-1, B-1, R.2. Manley Die State 1.0. PCGS has labeled this half cent as a Mint Error for its defective planchet. An intricately struck chocolate-brown Liberty Cap half cent that has satin luster and unabraded surfaces. Several slender fissures cross the obverse, but they are as made and were present on the planchet prior to the strike. Although considered the same type as the 1794, the bust of Liberty is smaller on the 1795 and has a shorter truncation. Mint State 1795 half cents are rarely encountered, and those in search of outstanding technical quality need look no further. EAC 50. Population: 1 in 62, 6 finer (3/09).
