Description

1793 C-1, B-1 Half Cent, VF25
The First 1793 Half Cent

1793 1/2 C VF25 NGC. C-1, B-1, R.3. Both Roger Cohen and Walter Breen assigned variety number one to this die marriage, correctly identifying it as the first of four 1793 half cent varieties coined at the Philadelphia Mint. Many type collectors seek only first year of issue coins, and it is important, wherever possible, for those collectors to also seek the first variety of the first year. In this case, it is also the first variety of the denomination.

This lovely two-tone specimen exhibits light tan devices with deeper steel-brown field toning. The surfaces are pleasing with no marks of consequence. Our EAC grade Fine 15.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)
