    1793 Half Cent, Choice Fine
    C-4, Introductory One-Year Type

    1793 1/2 C C-4, B-4, Low R.3, Fine 15 PCGS. Ex: Widok Collection. Manley Die State 2.0. 1793 was the first year of operation at the Philadelphia Mint. It was also the only year that the Liberty Cap half cent bust faces left. C-4 was the final die pairing for the date, and it is slightly more available than the three prior marriages. This is a completely problem-free representative without relevant marks or granularity. All legends are bold, and Liberty's eye is sharp. The medium brown surfaces are pleasing. Our EAC grade Fine 12.
    Ex: Mark Hayes, 5/2015; Widok Collection (Ira & Larry Goldberg, 2/2020), lot 403.
