WOW! THAT IS NOT A MISPRINT: THIS IS A FOR-REAL 1797 C3C GRIPPED EDGE HALF CENT, FROM THE MISSOURI CABINET! 1797 C3c Liberty Cap half cent, Gripped Edge, R7-. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as AG3, and it' last appearance was the Missouri Cabinet sale by Goldberg's on 01/26/14, where it was lot #48 and sold for $55,200. Here is the Grellman description from that sale: "1797 C-3c R7- Low Head with Gripped Edge. PCGS graded About Good-3. The obverse is G5 while the reverse is only Fair-2 at best. Lightly cleaned, now recolored a glossy light bluish steel brown. The only notable mark is a light scratch from the I in UNITED to the T in CENT. The date is strong. The grip marks are not strong and many of them are missing, but enough are visible to make the attribution possible and the ones that remain line up with clearer ones on higher grade examples. The attribution was confirmed by Roger Cohen, and this example is listed by Breen in his 1983 encyclopedia (page 191) as one of only seven confirmed by him (with three additional pieces claimed but unverified at that time). A couple more have been found since then, but all are in very low grade. MDS, Manley state 2.0. Our grade is AG3. Weight 82.2 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; 2 finer, including a VG8 and a G6 (which was a selection from the Missouri Cabinet sold in our Davy II sale, 9/4/2011:183 where it realized $195,500.00) (PCGS # 35116) . Estimated Value $20,000-UP. Ex Purchased unattributed by Richard S. Shimkus-Don Valenziano, Jr.-Early American Coppers Sale 5/11/1986:62-Jack H. Robinson, Superior Galleries 1/29/1989:1891-R. Tettenhorst-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 97.3c.4)." As of today 09/03/18, there are believed to be 12 or 13 known examples, and only FIVE of those have qualified for PCGS holders: AG3; AG3; G6; VG8; VG10. The current PCGS Price Guide is $72,500, so this coin is priced 10% below that, and the discounted price is even LOWER. This is a real MONSTER, and also quite expensive, so I AM ABLE to offer extended purchase terms on this coin. I would also be interested in trading for any 1793 half cents or large cents. Please reach out to me by email to discuss payment terms or trade options! Without exception, my coins are sharper and more attractive in hand than in my photos. So if you like the photos, you will LOVE the coin!
