Lot Details
1793 1/2C Genuine, Environmental Damage PCGS
C-2, B-2, R.3. Details of VG. Showing distinct granularity overall, dark chocolate-brown fields contrast with green incrustation on each side. An area of gray color surrounding the digits of the date indicates a possible treatment with acid at one time. The portrait stands out in bold contrast, date is quite plain and almost complete but for the bases of the numerals 93, LIBERTY is mostly intact. The reverse legends are complete, including denomination and fraction. While a smoother coin or a sharper coin might be preferable, this piece boasts adequate eye appeal for its grade and will be a more than acceptable way to start a U.S. type coin collection; indeed, many type collectors wish their 1793 half cent had this much eye appeal at this grade.
