Lot Description
1793 1/2 C AU58 PCGS. C-4, B-4, Low R.3. Manley Die State 2.0, with the die defect atop the 7. An impressively sharp and smooth representative of this popular single-year type. Chocolate-brown dominates both sides, with a glimpse of deeper brown toning present on the lower left obverse and central reverse. Liberty's cheek and forehead display a hint of friction, but the designs are exquisitely impressed aside from minor softness on a few letters in AMERICA. Marks are minor for the grade, and the only identifiers are two faint, hair-thin scratches in front of the chin and behind the cap. These are inconspicuous because of subsequent natural toning, and the quality and significance of the present piece is irrefutable. EAC 40. From The Monedas Oro Collection.
