    1793 Cohen-3 Half Cent
    XF Sharpness

    1793 1/2 C C-3, B-3, R.3 -- Repaired -- PCGS Genuine. XF Details. A well-defined example of the scarce single-year Head Left, Liberty Cap type, coined during the first year of operations at the Philadelphia Mint. The mauve and tan-brown surfaces are glossy, and the upper left obverse field has a shallow depression. The reverse shows rim knocks at 2 and 8 o'clock. Nonetheless, much sharper than the typical specimen, and without the environmental damage endemic to the issue. Our EAC grade Fine 15.
    From The Maurice Storck Collection.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
