Sharp Problem-Free 1793 Half Cent, XF40 NGC1793 1/2 C XF40 NGC. B-2, C-2, R.3. The reverse of Cohen-2, which is also found on Cohen-3, is notable for a very large center dot and a curved fraction bar. The I in LIBERTY is only partly above Liberty's forehead curl. The obverse was formerly used on Cohen-1. Manley states that the "repunching on the 9 [present on C-1] is gone," but this is apparently an early die stage, as the digit shows recutting inside the loop near the top. A small spur from the upper right corner of the 9 is also present. This splendidly detailed and refreshingly unabraded example has mahogany-brown patina. A very faint pinscratch near the lower right obverse border is barely worthy of mention. The dies are rotated approximately 30 degrees clockwise. The Bust Left type was struck for only one year, and 1793 is also the first year of production of the denomination. (#1000) (Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)
