Description:
Extraordinary 1793 Half Cent, C-2, AU50
1793 1/2 C AU50 NGC. C-2, B-2, R.3. Part of a total mintage of 35,334 pieces in 1793, the C-2 is considered the second rarest variety of the date. The variety is characterized by a long numeral 7 in the date and the position of the letter L above the brow on the obverse, with the reverse fraction crowded between the ribbon ends. An early appearance of this variety was in the Richard B. Winsor Collection (S.H. & H. Chapman, 12/1895), lot 1001. The lot description reads, "1793 Large 7 in date; head farther from Liberty and in lower relief than above. Rev. same as last. Uncirculated. Only the slightest touch of cabinet friction on cheek. Beautiful light olive. See plate." The coin sold for $12.50, a strong price for the time.
The present coin displays glossy-brown surfaces on both sides. The fields are devoid of significant contact marks. All design features are well defined, including the inner border on each side. The reverse is rotated clockwise about 15 degrees. This specimen exhibits excellent technical quality and aesthetic appeal for an early half cent. EAC 40.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)
