    1793 C-1, B-1 Half Cent, VF20
    Rare Late Die State

    1793 Liberty Cap Left, Bent Cap, C-1, B-1, High R.3, VF20 NGC. CAC. Our EAC grade VG10. 106.2 grains. Breen Die State III. Manley Die State 3.0. HALF CENT on the reverse is no longer visible due to a combination of die sinking and wear. This is a lovely example of the rare late die state that exhibits a reverse rim break over F AME. While the obverse die was used for the first two varieties of 1793, the reverse die with this rim break was removed from service at the end of production of this variety. The present example has exceptionally smooth chocolate-brown surfaces with nice centering that permits viewing the die break in its entirety. The late die state 1793 C-1, B-1 half cents are extremely popular with collectors, and they are elusive with perhaps two dozen known in all grades.
    Ex: Gates; Jon Hanson; William K. Raymond (7/29/1967); Donald G. Partrick.
