Description

1796 C-2, B-2 Half Cent, VG Details
With Pole Rarity

1796 1/2 C With Pole -- Obverse Scratched -- NGC Details. VG. C-2, B-2, R.4. The 1796 half cents are the key issues to the series, and two varieties are known, having or lacking a pole on the obverse. Mint records indicate a total coinage of 1,390 half cents in the second half of 1796, and it is believed that those were the only coins dated 1796, with none struck in 1797 or later years.

This specimen has prominent scratches on the obverse with lighter scratches on the reverse. The surfaces are dark brown. The obverse has a full date, LIBERTY, and rims. The reverse has slight weakness at the tops of UNITED STATES with all other details and letters visible. Our EAC grade AG3.
