1796 50c PCGS VF30 (15 Stars)

DLRC #: 1825671 // PCGS #: 6057

Desirable in all grades, this piece is often featured in the Top 100 US Coins reference book. Totally choice for the grade, with light grayish-brown surfaces this piece is a fantastic survivor from a mintage of just 934 pieces. The 1796 is the first year of type and is scarcer than the 1797s and is more desirable based on the rarity.
