Lot Description
1802/0 1/2 C Reverse of 1802 Fine 15 PCGS. B-2, C-2, R.3. A well balanced mid-grade representative with nominal striking deficiency across ENT of CENT and the lower portion of the wreath. Several lengthy, but shallow field marks on the obverse are ancient in origin. Although more available than its Reverse of 1800 counterpart, this issue is still scarce and desirable in all levels of preservation. Struck on spoiled cent planchets, the B-2 variety is most easily distinguished by the Ts on the reverse which lack their left base and a faint die scratch from the right stem end to the right base of the final A.
