Description

Charming VF30 C-3, B-3 1793 Half Cent

1793 1/2 C VF30 NGC. C-3, B-3, R.3. An ebony-brown representative of the single year Liberty Cap, Bust Left type, struck during the first year of operations at the fledgling U.S. Mint. Four 1793 die marriages are known, and their order of production is known since they are die linked. C-2 has the obverse of C-1, C-3 has the reverse of C-2, and C-4 has the obverse of C-3.
On the present piece, all legends and berries are bold, and the strike is consistent throughout. A powerful loupe reveals only a few faded marks, most evident on the curl beneath the cap. Struck a few degrees off center toward 4:30, affecting only the width of the rim. MRB Fine 15.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)
