    Lettered Edge 1795 Half Cent
    C-1, B-1, AU55

    1795 1/2 C Lettered Edge AU55 PCGS. C-1, B-1, R.2. Easily attributed by the letter I in the date instead of a number 1; a thick bar or pole near the bust truncation; and a small die lump after the second A in AMERICA. This Choice AU example is conditionally scarce for the variety, and Mint State pieces are rare. The tan and steel-gray coloration is somewhat lighter than usual, for this early type. The striking details are better struck than average, and well centered on the planchet. Any serious collector interested in assembling a high-grade set of early half cents should consider this attractive and technically impressive specimen. MRB XF45. Population: 10 in 55, 18 finer (4/11).
    Ex: 2008 ANA Auction (Heritage, 7-8/2008), lot 944.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 2224, PCGS# 1009)
