The glossy golden-tan surfaces of this attractive half cent divulge no meaningful contact marks to the unaided eye. The devices are crisp for the grade, and the eye appeal is nothing short of outstanding. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine a finer PCGS-certified EF-45 example of this ever-popular issue. Struck early in the infancy of the Philadelphia Mint, this half cent is the only Flowing Hair type -- 1793-1797 -- to feature Liberty's profile to the viewer's left. Absolutely choice by any and all standards, and a coin that deserves special attention from our bidders.
