 Description
1797 C3B Liberty Cap Half Cent, Lettered Edge, R4. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as VG10, and this is an EXCELLENT example of a variety that usually comes dark and ugly and also in low grades. This coin has WAY above average surfaces, color, and eye appeal, and it's pedigreed to the 03/30/16 Stacks auction, where it was lot #12199 and sold for $3995. In that auction, the coin was described as: "Deep olive brown with no defects worthy of mention aside from perhaps a very faint old scratch on the reverse that can only be seen with good magnification. The obverse is essentially flawless for the grade and smooth, making for an excellent first impression. Possibly struck over a defective large cent that has been cut down. The reverse shows evidence of the undertype in the upper right wreath, and the artifacts seem to be elements of a larger wreath, though there is little that can be discerned with certainty. A bit unevenly struck with peripheral weakness through STATES OF AMER, but this is the reason that traces of the undertype are visible at all and the feature is certainly not unusual. A lovely example for the grade." Well said! Without exception, my coins are sharper and more attractive in person than in my photos, so if you like the photos, you will LOVE the coin!
