Description

Rare 1796 Half Cent, With Pole, C-2

1796 1/2 C With Pole Genuine PCGS. C-2, B-2, High R.4. The PCGS number ending in .97 suggests Environmental Damage as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of a Fair specimen that is corroded and damaged. The date and pole are clear, and a majority of the legends are readable. Darkly toned and somewhat rough with a patch of fine pinscratches on the centers of both sides. Liberty's cheek has a circular depression. The 1796 is the rarest date of the half cent denomination, and examples are eagerly sought regardless of condition. MRB Fair 2.(Registry values: P9, N9) (NGC ID# 2227, PCGS# 1027)
