1/2 Cent    (sold for $350000.0)

Description: 1797 C-2 R3. PCGS graded MS-66 Brown. CAC Approved. Highly lustrous bluish steel brown with faint hints of underlying faded mint red. The only defects are a small carbon spot in the field left of the L in LIBERTY and another between the E & N in CENT. Otherwise this piece is an absolute gem. Outstanding eye appeal, possibly the finest known of the variety and one of the most beautiful early half cents we have ever seen. Listed first in the Breen/Hanson condition census in Breen's half cent encyclopedia, page 180. Struck on a flawless planchet that must have been cut from rolled planchet stock rather than from a TAL cent or spoiled large cent. The reverse is rotated 10 degrees CCW. Our grade is MS63. Weight 95.8 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35104) . Estimated Value $50,000-UP.
