Lot Description
1805 Draped Bust Half Cent. C-3. Rarity-4. Manley Die State 2.0. Small 5, Stems. Fine-12 (PCGS). Relatively choice for the grade with very few marks available to the naked eye despite the lengthy stay in the channels of commerce. The deep golden-brown surfaces are chocolate-brown in places. Prominent obverse bulge at Liberty's profile, portions of HALF CENT, especially the H and CE, are weak but present still. All told, an amply pleasing example of this somewhat elusive variety.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Manley Die State 2.0. "Obverse: The bulge before the face is prominent, later becoming massive. Reverse: HALF CENT is usually weak. The usual state."
