Scarce VF30 Cohen-1 1793 Half Cent

1793 1/2 C VF30 PCGS. C-1, B-1, High R.3. Cohen-1 is the first half cent variety struck, and is also the scarcest variety of the year. A branch stem touches the U in UNITED, diagnostic for Cohen-1. This example provides medium lilac toning and lacks the granularity seen on most early half cents, although a pair of inconsequential spots are found near the obverse rim at 2 o'clock. HALF CENT is mostly worn, but all remaining legends are bold except for the final A in AMERICA. Each side has one or two faint thin marks unworthy of further comment. An important single-year type coin, since the bust faces right beginning in 1794. EAC 12.
