1797 Liberty Cap Half Cent. C-2. Rarity-3. Centered Head, Plain Edge. VF-20 (PCGS). The deep chestnut-brown surfaces appear hard and glossy in spite of tiny ticks that can be seen by the naked eye. However, other than those tiny disturbances, no marks of any significance are seen and the coin offers a pleasing visual to the viewer. The design elements are bold throughout given the grade, though we note about half of the reverse dentils are missing, chiefly on the right of the rim. All things aside, we give this coin a big "thumbs up."
