1811 Classic Half Cent. C-2, B-2. Rarity-3-. Manley Die State 1.0. VG-10 (PCGS). Deep olive-charcoal patina to both sides, the surfaces a bit rough in texture, yet free of singularly conspicuous blemishes. Well defined for the grade, we note generally bold definition to the major devices with only the expected (for the variety) softness of strike at the left-reverse border.
