Lot Description
1795 1/2 C Lettered Edge MS63 Brown PCGS. C-1, B-1, R.2. Ex: Hesselgesser. The usual early die state with perfect dies before sinking develops through AME in AMERICA. The Lettered Edge 1795 half cents could be called the "only real" 1795 half cents, as they were actually struck in 1795. The Plain Edge pieces were apparently all produced in 1796. A boldly detailed example with extraordinary golden-brown and tan surfaces, the luster is still evident on both sides. Although the strike was not perfectly centered, all of the border details on both sides can still be seen. EAC 45. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
