Description

Choice AU 1793 Half Cent
C-1, First Dies of Denomination

1793 1/2 C AU55 PCGS Secure. C-1, B-1, High R.3. Manley Die State 1.0, "rare," with HALF CENT bold. This Choice AU example is from the first half cent die pair, and was struck on July 20, per Walter Breen's 1988 Encyclopedia. Periods after CENT and AMERICA distinguish the reverse from its successors. Rich chocolate-brown toning is predominant, with hints of mahogany in protected areas. Evenly struck and unabraded with minimal evidence of contact. The obverse is misaligned a few degrees toward 10:30, although the beaded dentils are intact. The planchet is ideal aside from a slender and fully retained lamination from the L in LIBERTY into the hair. MRB XF40.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)
