Description

1793 C-1, B-1 Half Cent, AU50
First Philadelphia Mint Half Cent

1793 1/2 C AU50 PCGS. CAC. C-1, B-1, High R.3. Slightly scarcer than any of the other three varieties, the C-1, B-1 half cent is considered the first of its date, and therefore the first half cent variety struck at the recently opened Philadelphia Mint. For that reason it is clearly the most important variety among all 1793 half cents. This nicely centered specimen has attractive mahogany surfaces with a few trivial marks on each side, including a few small rim nicks on the obverse. High grade 1793 half cents, coins above VF, are elusive and always in great demand. Our EAC grade VF35.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)
