Description

Notable 1795 Lettered Edge Half Cent
C-1, MS62 Brown

1795 1/2 C Lettered Edge MS62 Brown NGC. C-1, B-1, R.2. Manley Die State 2.0 with a bulge through AME. The second year of the Liberty Cap type, but with an entirely different head than appeared in 1794. The basic design is the same, but engraving differences are enough that the 1795 to 1797 half cents should be considered an entirely new design.
Lustrous mahogany surfaces exhibit the usual scattered marks that often accompany high grade pieces, and they are generally attributed to planchet roughness before the coins were struck. The fields are faintly reflective, and retain remnants of original mint red near some devices. This extraordinary piece will be a nice addition to the cabinet of a specialist or a type collector. MRB AU50.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 2225, PCGS# 1009)
