Description

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

1793 1/2 C VF30 PCGS. C-3, B-3, R.3. Four die varieties were minted in 1793, and this is the third of those in the emission sequence. The obverse exhibits pleasing olive patina with subtle golden overtones and darker toning outlining the devices. The reverse has a blend of olive and darker steel-brown toning. A minor scratch appears at the upper left obverse with fine surface roughness on both sides. This is still a pleasing example of the first-year half cent that will appeal to type collectors and specialists alike. Coins like this example are in high demand. MRB Fine 15.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)

Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
