1802/0 1/2c PCGS F15 (Rev of 1802) ex: D.L. Hansen

Elusive Half Cent

The 1802 half cent is a challenging date and the key issue in the Draped Bust series. The Reverse of 1800 is so rare as to be almost prohibitive with just a handful known, making the reverse of 1802 the primary collectible variety. The present coin has a even dark chocolate color throughout and nice eye appeal for the grade. The number one set holds a VF20 example for the date.

Asking Price: $5,750.00
