1795 Liberty Cap Half Cent. C-1. Rarity-2. Manley Die State 1.0. Lettered Edge, With Pole. VF-30 (PCGS). The glossy surfaces offer a display of mingled deep chestnut-red, golden-tan, and chocolate-brown that greet the eye in a pleasing format. No marks of any measure are to be found with the naked eye, allowing for us to call this specimen choice without any reservations. The devices are all crisp for the grade, and the overall appearance is superior to many other pieces at the given grade. Ideally suited for a type collection or a half cent cabinet.<br />
Manley Die State 1.0: "Obverse: Perfect die. Reverse: No bulge through AME. The usual state."
