1795 C-4 R3 PCGS "Genuine." Sharpness VF35 or slightly better but lightly cleaned and nicely retoned glossy dark olive and chocolate brown with frost showing in the protected areas, especially on the reverse. The only marks are a very faint diagonal hairline on the cheek and a few of the usual microscopic pre-striking planchet chips on the portrait. None of these marks is visible without a strong glass and the eye appeal of this piece is excellent. LDS, Manley state 2.0. The swelling in the field before the portrait is obvious. Nicely struck everywhere except inside the wreath where HALF CENT is weak or gone, as usual in the later die state. A very nice example in spite of the "Genuine" assessment from the folks at PCGS. Our grade is net VF30.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.

Realized $1,668
