Pre-Long Beach Coin Auction

Flowing Hair Half Cents
Lot Photo Description Realized
Lot 249
1793 C-1 R3+. VG-8. Glossy chocolate and olive brown. There is uniform extremely faint roughness covering the fields and protected areas, but this microscopic granularity is well hidden under the attractive glossy patina. No verdigris or marks. The date is strong and the legends are clear except for inside the wreath where minor swelling associated with the late die state causes HALF CENT to wear more quickly. Rare LDS, Manley state 3.0, with a strong rim cud break over F-AME.
Estimated Value $3,500 - 4,500.
Ex Roger S. Cohen, Jr., Superior 2/2/92:3-J. R. Frankenfield, McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Superior 2/17/01:2.
