    Desirable 1795 C-5a, B-5a Half Cent, VF35

    1795 1/2 C Plain Edge, No Pole VF35 NGC. C-5a, B-5a, R.3. Thin Planchet (83.3 grains). Breen State I. Manley State 1.0. EAC 15. A diagonal die crack through the upper part of the wreath is always present on this die marriage.
    Less scarce than once thought, the C-5a half cent carries a R.3 rating today. While a few high-grade coins are known, typical examples grade just G to VF. Thin and thick planchet variations exist and are identified as C-5a or C-5b. The thin planchet coins are typically about 84 grains.
    Somewhat muted light brown surfaces with evidence of lighter tan on the reverse, perhaps cleaned and recolored. The surfaces are lightly abraded as usual. A single noticeable mark extends down from the tail of the 7.
    Ex: J.R. Frankenfield (Superior, 2/2001), lot 33.
    From The Colonel Steven Ellsworth Collection of U.S. Half Cents.
