    1796 C-1, B-1 Half Cent, Fair 2
    Rare No Pole Variety

    1796 1/2 C No Pole, C-1, B-1, R.6, Fair 2 PCGS. Ex: Furnace Run Collection. The bust of Liberty is fully outlined with LIBERTY partially readable and the date faint but fully visible. The reverse detail is partially evident. All genuine 1796 No Pole half cents have a prominent bisecting die crack from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock on the obverse. Due to the grade of this example, that bisecting crack is not discernable in its entirety, but a trace of the crack remains visible at Liberty's upper lip just below the nose. This is an extremely important opportunity for the advanced collector to obtain a rarity in the early half cent series. Our EAC grade Fair 2.
    Ex: Loma Linda Collection, Part II - Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2018), lot 3699.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
