C-3, B-3, R.1. Exceptional eye appeal and smooth surfaces for an 1808 half cent, with brown luster in the fields and a bold strike. Liberty's hair curls show full separation, as well as the reverse leaves the display their central intricate veins. Classic medium brown throughout, the color even and free of spotting. One minor dig at the last S of STATES serves to identify, and the surfaces are otherwise free of all but a few but a few wispy lines seen at certain angles. The reverse die was rotated about 160 degrees counter clockwise when struck, a common feature of this variety. PCGS Population: 8, 9 finer (MS64 Brown Finest) in all designations. (PCGS 1107)
