1793 1/2c PCGS VF30 (Bent Cap, Bunched Leaves)

DLRC #: 338760 // PCGS #: 1000

One of the very first coins struck at the US mint. Famous as a one-year type coin the 1793 half cent is highly desirable and sought out by serious collectors and investors. The coin offered here is surprisingly sharp for the grade with above-average surface quality and a lovely chocolate coloring. A wonderful opportunity to obtain a great 18th century treasure.
