Lot Description
1795 1/2 C Lettered Edge MS62 Brown NGC. B-1, C-1, R.2. Struck from a relatively early die state, although advanced enough for the beginnings of a small rim cud above ED in UNITED. The mahogany-brown surfaces are evenly and well struck with a delicate violet tint overall. A tiny planchet void forms a roundish dark spot out from the tip of the bust, otherwise the surfaces are uncommonly and pleasantly smooth. B-1 is a rather plentiful Lettered Edge die marriage that is quickly attributed by the letter I in the date instead of a 1 and a comparatively large 9. On the reverse, there is a small, comma-like die scratch after AMERICA. Census: 4 in 62, 2 finer (11/05).
