1/2 Cent    (sold for $625000.0)

Description: 1793 C-3 R3. PCGS graded MS-65 Brown. CAC Approved. Very attractive lustrous light steel brown with 5% of the mint red remaining on the obverse, 10% on the reverse. An outstanding 1793 Half Cent that offers superb eye appeal. The only defects, and they are trivial, are a very shallow planchet flake near the dentils right of the top of the cap and a few microscopic planchet chips in the field behind the portrait (all as struck), plus a small rim nick at the A in STATES. MDS showing fine die rust at TES in STATES into the upper right part of the wreath. Both sides are centered on the planchet. This piece is extensively plated in the Breen encyclopedia, including on page 43 to illustrate the uncirculated grade, page 68 to show the edge lettering, page 76 where the large photos illustrate the Cohen-3 die variety, and at the top of the first color plate at the back of the book. Walter Breen had access to most of the finest pieces available, and it is easy to see why he chose this piece for his color plate. Our grade is MS64. Weight 103.3 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35009) . Estimated Value $200,000-UP. Ex Douglas Weaver Rare Coin Co., 1/12/1972-George W. "Hank" Rodgers 3/27/1972-R. Tettenhorst-EPNNES-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 93.3.1). Categories: Missouri Cabinet - Flowing Hair Half Cents
