Description

    Impressive AU58 1793 Half Cent

    1793 1/2 C AU58 NGC. B-2, C-2, R.3. Even brown patina and sharply defined throughout. The reverse is rotated slightly and there is a darker speckling of color in the left obverse field. The 1793 Half Cent is a classic American coin. Its design was based on the Libertas Americana medal from 1781, and this lovely type was only struck for one year. Very rare in high grades and virtually unobtainable in mint condition, this piece represents excellent value for the collector who wishes to own a coin with the sharpness and most of the luster of a Mint State piece but at a considerably reduced price.
    From the Ohio Collection. (NGC ID# 2222, PCGS# 1000)
