1793 1/2 C C-2, B-2, R.3, XF40 PCGS. CAC. The Liberty Cap, Bust Left type was limited to 1793, the first year of coinage at the U.S. Mint. The present XF example is much nicer than the typical survivor. Dr. Manley writes that C-2 is "usually available only in low grades." Cohen-2 was the second half cent variety. It shares an obverse die with Cohen-1, and a reverse die with Cohen-3. The golden-brown and gunmetal-gray surfaces show only light, even wear. Marks are trivial save for a slight reverse rim knock at 1:30 and a brief diagonal line between the LI in LIBERTY. The obverse exhibits tiny scattered depressions. The overall quality is exceptional. Our EAC grade VF25. From The Gibney Family Collection. HID06601242017
