1804 Draped Bust Half Cent. C-5. Rarity-4. Manley Die State 5.0. Spiked Chin. AU-50 (PCGS). The deep golden-brown surfaces verge on chocolate-brown in places. The devices are bold for the grade and the chin "spike" is plainly evident, as are the screw thread-marks in the field at Liberty's chin. Completely unmarked to the naked eye, and choice for the grade as such.<br />
Manley Die State 5.0. "Obverse: Bulge visible in the right field. Reverse: The bisecting crack is heavy. A new crack is heavy through the wreath stem below O in OF. The crack extends very faintly up through the triplet leaf to the base of O in OF, and faintly down through the doublet leaf, joining the bisecting crack above AL in HALF. The usual state."
