1796 50c PCGS Repaired VF Details (15 Stars)

DLRC #: 1084183 // PCGS #: 6057

PCGS describes the coin as VF details with a repair, yet we have thoroughly examined this coin and can find only a single minor flaw on the forehead of Liberty that warrants a non-numeric grade. Beautiful old silver surfaces cover both sides, and the strike is lovely for the type with good hair detail on Liberty and feathers on the eagle.
