1800 C-1 R2. NGC graded MS-62 Red & Brown. Lustrous bright original mint red fading to bluish steel on the devices, about two-thirds of the original mint color remaining. This piece has the look of a flashy gem to the unaided eye, but a glass reveals that both sides are covered with very tiny nicks suggesting it was mixed with other coins during transport over a bumpy road. None of these ticks is significant in its own right, but there are far too many to ignore. Otherwise the only defect is a splash of microscopic specks of dark toning at the date. LDS, Manley state 5.0. The die crack through the E in UNITED is strong and connects to the wreath below. This piece may be from one of the two small hoards of mint state 1800 half cents discovered in the New England area in the early 1900's. Our grade is MS60.
Estimated Value $4,000-UP.

Realized $3,220
