    1793 C-4 Half Cent, Good 4
    Appealing for the Grade

    1793 1/2 C C-4, B-4, Low R.3, Good 4 PCGS. The legends, fraction, and date blend to the edges, and the coin shows heavy, smooth wear overall, but the surfaces are essentially problem-free. Pleasing chocolate-brown color has a slight reddish tinge, and spreads evenly across both sides. Numerous light marks and abrasions are visible under magnification. The Cohen-4 variety has long stems and a short 7 in the date, although neither of those identifiers are particularly clear on this well-worn coin. Our EAC grade AG3. (NGC ID# 2222, Variety PCGS# 35012, Base PCGS# 1000)

    Weight: 6.74 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
