Description

Attractive XF40 1793 Half Cent, C-4, B-4

1793 1/2 C XF40 PCGS. C-4, B-4, Low R.3. This is the first year of issue for the half cent denomination, and it is a one-year design type with the profile of Liberty facing to the left. Beginning the next year, the profile is facing to the right. Although it is not known with certainty, it is believed that the designer of this type was Joseph Wright who is best known for his 1793 Liberty Cap large cent design. These half cents were coined from mid-July through mid-September, at about the same time as the Liberty Cap cents were produced. This wonderful example has glossy, smooth surfaces with splendid reddish-brown color and only light wear on the highest points. A few tiny field marks are noted, but the overall quality is choice with excellent eye appeal. MRB VF30.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)
