Lot Description
1797 1/2 C Plain Edge VF30 PCGS. C-2, B-2, R.4. A late die state with a reverse crack extending from below the 2 to the tops of UN and the border over I. An intriguing mark at the top of the Y in LIBERTY may deserve close study, as it is possibly an undertype from a cut-down large cent. Wonderful light tan and pale blue toning on both sides accompany the smooth and pleasing surfaces of this piece. EAC 20. From The Nora Bailey Collection.
