1787 M55-l New Jersey PLURIRUS Error PCGS F15 E PLURIBUS UNUM collection ($1,499.00)
1787 New Jersey M55-l, W5300, PLURIRUS reverse error, R5. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as F15. From the E PLURIBUS UNUM collection sold by Stacks at Baltimore 2019, where it was described as: "144.8 grains. Glossy light brown with an area of darker mahogany surface scale on the left side of the obverse and a more subtle area on the right side of the reverse. The last date digit is about half on the planchet, otherwise the centering is pretty good for the variety. This is the elusive late die state, Die State 3, with a heavy crack through AE to the snout and a thin arc crack from the rim to the tops of RE. Some swelling in the right obverse field reduces detail in that area. The PLURIRUS characteristic, from a B with a broken base, is clear. This is a variety that is usually ugly, but this one bucks that trend, even if it is not sharp enough to be in Condition Census contention." There are very few of these graded at PCGS, in fact this coin and my other VG10 are both plated on the COINFACTS page. Current PCGS Price Guide is $2,750. Without exception, my coins are sharper and nicer in person than in my photos, so if you like the photos, you will LOVE the coin!

A fantastic overstrike, the legends of host and parasite combine to form NOVACAEORIREA CONNEC on the obverse. The LIR of the ETLIR type of the host coin is clearly visible above the middle point of the shield on the reverse. Glossy light chestnut, well struck and centered, with a few patches of darker patina at left obverse and lower reverse. A choice and intriguing overstrike on a Red Book listed type Connecticut. Provenance: From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex Bowers and Merena’s Sale of the Greenwald and Jackson Collections, September 11, 1995, lot 3172." I would also like to point out that 87 from the host coin's date is clearly visible above UNUM on the reverse! Without exception, my coins are sharper and nicer in person than in my photos, so if you like the photos, you will LOVE the coin!
1787 New Jersey M60p PLURIBS R4 PCGS VF20 E PLURIBUS UNUM collection ($1,650.00)
1787 New Jersey M60-p, PLURIBS reverse error, R4. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as VF20, and it is the most ATTRACTIVE PLURIBUS error that I have handled. From the E PLURIBUS UNUM collection sold by Stacks at Baltimore 2019, where it was lot 6195 described as: "147.6 grains. Lovely even deep steel with good eye appeal despite finely granular surfaces. Nicely struck, with a full horsehead and fairly complete shield. Bold denticles frame the tops of both sides, and some less complete denticles are visible elsewhere around both peripheries. An old scratch crosses the head below the ears, and a dig hides between C and AE of CAESAREA; a single old vertical scratch blends into the shield lines. A good looking example of this scarce and popular variety, slightly more common than the other marriage coined with the PLURIBS reverse. This probably ranks below the Condition Census, which includes two AUs, an EF+, a VF+, and four VFs, but it remains an awfully nice example of a Maris number that usually comes in low grade, badly flawed, or both. Die State 1, perfect dies." Another magnificent coin that is plated at PCGS Coinfacts. Current PCGS Price Guide is $2,600. Without exception, my coins are sharper and nicer in person than in my photos, so if you like the photos, you will LOVE the coin!

Outstanding color, surfaces, and eye appeal, and certainly looks Fine-Very Fine to my eyes. In fact, the insert that coins with the coin says "Nice VF." Dark chocolate brown and smooth, can't imagine a nicer coin for a "VG10", LOL! Without exception, my coins are sharper and nicer in person than in my photos, so if you like the photos, you will LOVE the coin!
1787 New Jersey M60-p W5340 PLURIBS PCGS VF20 Jim Rehmus ($1,350.00)

So if you like the photos, you will LOVE the coin!

1793 C1 R3+ Liberty Cap Half Cent PCGS F12 CAC Furnace Run Collection ($10,500.00)
1793 C1 Liberty Cap half cent, smooth bust line, R3+. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as F12, and CAC-certified as a CHOICE example. This coin was lot #175 in the Stacks auction of 11/15/11, where it was described as: "Deep golden tan with exceptional in-hand eye appeal for the grade. Choice surfaces with far fewer marks than typically associated with the grade, even under low magnification. HALF CENT weak and barely legible due to strike, all other details bold for the grade with portions of the beaded rim device visible, especially on the reverse. From the first year of coinage at the newly opened Philadelphia Mint, and a classic half cent issue of the highest order--everyone needs one for a type set, as it is the only year of its design type with head of Liberty and cap to left. Just 35,334 examples were forthcoming from the fledgling Mint's presses. One of four recognized die pairs for the date with the present variety, Cohen-1, exhibiting a period after AMERICA in the reverse legend. There are probably more potential buyers for an affordable and pleasing '93 half cent at the Fine-12 level, as offered here, than for the same date in high-grade AU or finer, so please bear in mind the probable degree of competition if you mean to be a successful bidder on this lot." Glossy medium chocolate brown with original color and bold details, aside from weak central reverse details which is due to the Manley 2.0 die state. Very nice for the grade and variety. The "Cohen 1" attribution and "Furnace Run Collection" pedigree are each listed on the PCGS label. Ex-Tom Reynolds March 2001; MHS Collection; Stacks 1/15/11:175:$8625; David Johnson 05/06/12; Shawn A. Yancey #9826; Furnace Run Collection 05/09/12. 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!
1793 C1 R3+ Liberty Cap Half Cent PCGS F15 LDS Reverse Cud Noyes 89399 ($12,500.00)
1793 C1 Liberty Cap half cent, smooth bust line, R3+. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as F15, and it's above average for the assigned grade. Glossy medium brown color with excellent eye appeal. Even better, this is a late die state (LDS) example, Manley 3.0, with reverse rim break cud at F-AME. Additionally, this coin is well-known and recorded in the Noyes condition census as #89399 as F15. Ex-Jim McGuigan EAC 1996; Ray Rouse; Steve Grabski; Shawn A. Yancey 08/20/09; JRB; Shawn A.

1793 C1 R3+ Liberty Cap Half Cent PCGS F15 Under-graded! ($12,500.00)
1793 C1 Liberty Cap half cent, smooth bust line, R3+. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as F15, and in my opinion, the coin is clearly under-graded. I think the die state fooled PCGS, because this variety ALWAYS comes weak on the reverse at HALF CENT. This is a middle-die-state (MDS) example with HALF CENT nearly gone but before the reverse rim break above F-AME. Rich dark chocolate brown color, smooth surfaces, and full borders on each side. Purchased raw as EAC VF25, and comes with a small white envelope from EAC #781, whom I am told is Mike Demling. In any case, this is an excellent example for the grade, with fantastic eye appeal. The "Cohen-1" attribution is listed on the PCGS label. 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!
1793 C2 R3 Liberty Cap Half Cent PCGS F12 Furnace Run Collection ($9,995.00)
1793 C2 Liberty Cap half cent, smooth bust line, R3. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as F12, and it s lovely example with glossy medium brown color, smooth surfaces, bold details that are even on both sides, and nice eye appeal. This variety only has one die state, and this example does show the typical rotated reverse. A glass shows some light circulation marks plus an as-struck shallow planchet fissure above OF-A on the reverse. A very good-looking example. Ex-Shawn A. Yancey #12120; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1793 C2 R3 Liberty Cap Half Cent PCGS VG Details Furnace Run Duplicate ($2,750.00)
1793 C2 Liberty Cap half cent, Head Left with smooth bust line, R3. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as VG Details Damage. My photos are a real insult to this coin, because in person it is an original chocolate brown with glossy surfaces that are faintly rough, and clear details including a bold date. Not perfect but very decent for a low grade 1793 half cent. My EAC grade VG8 net G5 and slightly below average, but MUCH better in person and a great value! Only one die state; typical rotated reverse. Ex-Rod Widok in 2006; Furnace Run duplicate. 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!
1793 C4 R3 Liberty Cap Half Cent PCGS VG Details Furnace Run Duplicate ($2,750.00)
1793 C4 Liberty Cap half cent, Head Left with hooked bust line, R3. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as VG Details Damage. My photos are a real insult to this coin, because in person it is an original chocolate brown with average surfaces that are faintly rough, and clear details including a bold date. I believe the damage is a very slight vertical bend that is evident by uneven wear across the reverse. Not perfect but very decent for a low grade 1793 half cent, and the eye appeal is very positive. My EAC grade VG8 net G6 and slightly below average, but MUCH better in person and a great value! Appears to be M1.0 with no rust lump on top of 7. Ex-Ebay in 2008 for $3439; Furnace Run duplicate.

Isolated peripheral areas are devoid of denticulation, but all devices are discernible, and most are boldly outlined. The Small Edge Letters is the more plentiful variant of this die marriage, but the 1794 C-6 is a scarce variety in an absolute sense with examples always in demand among specialists."

The center of the reverse appears to bulge outward almost imperceptibly, but the date and legends are complete and easily readable, including HALF CENT.

No surface corrosion, just light even granularity throughout. The eye appeal is still positive and overall this is an acceptable example. Rough surfaces make the die state determination a challenge, but there are no obvious clash marks so I am going to go with M1.0. The reverse die crack through between ED on the reverse is bold. Purchased in 2015 on Ebay where it was in an NGC VF Details holder; Furnace Run Collection. Without exception, my coins are sharper and more attractive in hand than in my photos.

All genuine 1796 No Pole half cents have a prominent bisecting die crack from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock on the obverse. Due to the low grade of this example, that bisecting crack is not discernable in its entirety, but a trace of the crack remains visible at Liberty's upper lip just below the nose. This is an extremely important opportunity for the advanced collector to obtain a rarity in the early half cent series. Our EAC grade Fair 2." The bisecting obverse die crack is only faintly visible, but fortunately all 4 digits of the date are easily readable in hand, and the coin is simple to attribute as Cohen 1.

There is a nick on the forehead, another under the eye, and a couple more light contact marks on the bust. The strike is uneven, weak on the bust and at OF, thanks to non-parallel die faces. Most researchers believe all of this variety were struck on spoiled large cent planchets. There are very faint hints of some undertype at the bust, but the wear and imperfect surfaces make identifying any undertype virtually impossible. The date is complete, but the 2 is faint due to the uneven strike. The legends are complete except for OF, which is faint due to the poor strike in that area. A decent, rather nicely detailed example of this extremely rare variety. Our grade is AG3+, very close to G4. The overdate feature and "Reverse of 1800" type are noted on the PCGS label." This coin did not sell in that auction, presumably because it did not meet a high reserve. Like the 1796 C1, this is another variety that is hard to find in a low-grade PCGS holder, and this represents an "affordable" example for this ultra-rarity, if that can be said about a coin with this price tag! The "C-1 Reverse of 1800" variety and "Furnace Run Collection" pedigree are both listed on the PCGS label. Ex-Shawn A. Yancey 07/12/05 at $19,500; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1802/0 C2 R3 Draped Bust Half Cent Reverse of 1802 ICG F12 Furnace Run Duplicate ($3,300.00)
1802/0 C2 Draped Bust Half Cent, Reverse of 1802, R3. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by ICG as F12. This is a gorgeous, original coin with glossy medium brown color that is hard to find on 1802 half cents, which are typically dark. The details are actually much stronger than F12, at least F15, and the eye appeal is excellent. This coin did NOT cross at PCGS, who noted the coin as "Scratch" on their return label. That scratch is VERY fine and NOT obvious to the naked eye, but a glass reveals it crossing the bust tip on the obverse. Despite that minor defect, this is an excellent example with great eye appeal. My EAC grade is F15+ net VG10+, and very close to fully F12. The die state is M3.0 with hair curl left of 1 clearly open, rusted dies both sides, and fine crack rim to second T in STATES. Purchased from "MM" in 2008 for $3700; Furnace Run duplicate. 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!
1803 C1 R1 Draped Bust Half Cent PCGS AU50 Furnace Run Collection ($1,699.00)
1803 C1 Draped Bust half cent, R1. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as AU50, and it was not sent to CAC due to time constraints. This is a glossy, lustrous example with a mushy appearance due to the extremely late die state which has obliterated the denticles and weakened the rims. The only cool part of the M3.0 LDS is that all of the reverse cracks described in Manley are bold and fully-developed. 1803 half cents are extremely hard to find in this grade and higher, and this is certainly a suitable example. Ex-Shawn A. Yancey #12121; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1803 C1 R1 Draped Bust Half Cent SEGS AU50 Furnace Run Duplicate ($650.00)
1803 C1 Draped Bust Half Cent, R1. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by SEGS as AU50 This is a very attractive example at arm's length, but I don't think the surface are original and I don't think it grades AU50, either. The obverse has attractive medium brown with darker chocolate, and the reverse is a much more attractive medium peanut butter brown. My EAC grade would be EF40+ net VF30+ and still Average thanks to good eye appeal. And should be priced on the money! M3.0; halo bulge around portrait; heavy reverse die crack. Purchased from Northeast Numismatics in 2007; Furnace Run duplicate. 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!
1803 C3 R2 Draped Bust Half Cent DOUBLE STRUCK PCGS VF Details Furnace Run Duplicate ($850.00)
1803 C3 Draped Bust half cent, R2. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as VF Details Cleaned. "Cleaned" is 100% the wrong word; "Brushed" is the accurate description. Despite the libel on the label, this is an excellent coin with no evidence of cleaning, very bold details that are beyond VF20, and nice eye appeal. But the best feature is that this is a major mint error which is clearly double-struck on the reverse. Manley M3.0 with strong die file lines beneath BERTY and a pronounced bulge through 18 in the date. Ex-Shawn A. Yancey #8264; Furnace Run collection. 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!
1803 C3 R2 Draped Bust Half Cent PCGS EF45 Furnace Run Collection ($1,100.00)
1803 C3 Draped Bust half cent, R2. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF45, and it is a very sharp and solid example for the grade. Medium peanut butter brown color with a splash of darker chocolate in the right obverse field. Minor nicks only with good eye appeal. The most notable sign of contact is a faint hairline from the top of the ear extending upward toward K11, but it requires a glass to see. M4.0; die file line left base of E to head; no bulges above and below curls; no weakness at STAT. Purchased in 2006 but no seller records; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1803 C4 R4 Draped Bust Half Cent PCGS VF25 Furnace Run Collection ($599.00)
1803 C4 Draped Bust half cent, R4. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as VF25. Sharp original with dark glossy chocolate brown color. The most notable signs of circulation are some album slide marks that cross the cheek horizontally, plus a very shallow hairline extending vertically upward from the bust tip. Strong details and good eye appeal, pretty decent for this tougher R4 variety. This variety features only one die state; BUT this example has the reverse rotated 145deg CCW to K7: could this be G. Maas #638 referenced in the Manley book? There is an old light blue envelope that comes with the coin, with lots of stuff written on both sides, including Madcoins, 218.76, Don Valenziano, Ebay, 03/25/01, 1223 245 675, VF30. Not sure how that all fits together but with that much pedigree going on, perhaps somebody can find the Maas catalog and see if this is that coin? Regardless, this coin was purchased from Ricky Gross in 2006; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1804 C1 R3 Draped Bust Half Cent PCGS EF45 Furnace Run Collection ($1,250.00)
1804 C1 Draped Bust half cent, Crosslet 4 with Stems, R3. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF45, and it is a rich dark chocolate brown example with glossy surfaces and nice eye appeal. The obverse shows several but minor signs of circulation, including a tiny nick on the cheek, a stronger but well hidden scuff in the lower hair, and a series of very fine scratches beneath the lowest curls. All of these are minor and require a strong glass to see clearly. The reverse is nearly mark-free yet does show some cool die state cracks from M2.0 including an interesting crack at F in HALF that forks off to the right. This die state also features weak drapery at the bust on the obverse. Overall a very attractive coin for the die variety, and not far from the expanded condition census for 1804 C1. Ex-CVM; Shawn A. Yancey #12089; Furnace Run Collection. 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!

1804 C11 Draped Bust half cent, Plain 4 With Stems, R3. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF45, and this is a nice, high-grade example of the toughest Redbook variety for 1804. Dark chocolate brown glossy surfaces with bold details, although a glass does reveal some teeny tiny nicks that are mainly limited to the obverse. Great color and eye appeal, and very sharp and somewhat well-struck for the variety. M2.0 with vertical obverse die scratch visible in left field, and clear weakness at ribbon bows on the reverse. Ex-Stacks 03/30/16 lot 12206 at $1410; unknown; CVM; Shawn A. Yancey #12088; Furnace Run Collection. Without exception, my coins are sharper and more attractive in hand than in my photos.

1804 C12 Draped Bust half cent, Crosslet 4 NO Stems, R2. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF45. Right off the bat the coin jumps out with excellent, excellent color! Soft glossy medium tan brown, very attractive. Some of that great color is from underlying mint luster, and if this coin were raw or graded by another company, many would call it fully AU50. This is the only die state; a strong glass shows only a nick or two on each side, and you have to hunt for them. Did I mention that this coin has attractive color? Purchased in 2006 but no records so likely Ebay; Furnace Run collection. 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!
1804 C12 R2 Draped Bust Half Cent PCGS AU Details Furnace Run Duplicate ($650.00)
1804 C12 Draped Bust Half Cent, Crosslet 4 No Stems, R2. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as AU Details, Cleaned. Sorry, I don't see that at all! Soft satiny luster emerges from both sides, and my consignor purchased this as a raw UNC. I suspect that PCGS did not like the color, which is attractive, because I do not see any hairlines or other evidence of cleaning on either side. Regardless, this is an attractive example and bargain-priced as an EF40+ because of the libel on the label. Only one die state for this variety. Purchased on Bbay back in 2008 for $981; Furnace Run duplicate. 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!
1804 C12 R2 Draped Bust Half Cent PCGS AU55 Furnace Run Collection ($899.00)
1804 C12 Draped Bust half cent, Crosslet 4 with NO Stems, R2. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as AU55, and it was not sent to CAC due to time constraints. This is a glossy medium brown example with some maroon undertones and only minor signs of contact. There is a lot of underlying luster here, and this one would certainly liven up with a brushing. C12 is the only Crosslet 4 Stemless Redbook variety, so everybody needs this one! No pedigree records; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1804 C13 R1 Draped Bust Half Cent Plain 4 No Stems NGC AU58 Furnace Run Collection ($750.00)
1804 C13 Draped Bust half cent, Plain 4 NO Stems, R1. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by NGC as AU58BN. This is an early die state coin M1.0 with LIB and UNIT both softly struck, so what might look like wear is actually from the strike. That being said, the luster is not strong enough for the AU58 grade, so consider this an EAC EF45 instead. Dark glossy chocolate brown, smooth with no marks to speak of, but I do see some debris within the reverse crevices. Purchased from Stacks in 2011 but not clear if that was auction or store purchase; Furnace Run collection. 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!
1804 C2 R6 Draped Bust Half Cent PCGS PR/FR Furnace Run Collection ($2,999.00)
1804 C2 Draped Bust half cent, Crosslet 4 with Stems, R6. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as PR/FR details, tooled. The coin is AG3 with even medium brown glossy surfaces on both sides, but with some light scratches on the portrait. The low 4 is plainly visible, as is the die crack through the top of RTY upward from Y to rim, M1.0, which makes attribution pretty darn simple. This is one of the rarest varieties in the half cent series, solid R6, and I believe this is the first and only 1804 C2 that I have offered for sale on my website. These are VERY expensive so this low-grade example might be one of the most "affordable" that you will find. My EAC grade AG3 net FR2 and just slightly below average, although the good color and glossy surfaces sure help offset the minor defects. Ex-CVM; Shawn A. Yancey #12086; Furnace Run Collection. 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!

This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF40, and it has very original medium brown color with some ancient debris within the devices. Very solid and nice looking, with a prominent Spiked Chin feature. Minor signs of contact only. Of course 1804 C6 are collected by die state, and to my eyes this is M4.5 with reverse cud above ME nearly complete but not quite full as in M5.0. Ex-David Lawrence Rare Coins 2009; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1804 C7 R4 Draped Bust Half Cent Spiked Chin LDS M7.0 Cud PCGS G6 Furnace Run Collection ($850.00)
1804 C7 Draped Bust half cent, Spiked Chin, R4. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as G6. Nice and smooth with sold G-VG details and good eye appeal. The star of the show here is the late die state M7.0 with heavy reverse rim break cud over AMERI which does not touch the tops of the A or I. A very rare and very cool die state! The "C-7 Spiked Chin" attribution and the "Furnace Run Collection" pedigree are both listed on the PCGS label. Purchased from Shawn A. Yancey 03/10/09; Furnace Run collection. 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!
1804 C7 R4 Draped Bust Half Cent Spiked Chin LDS PCGS F15 CAC Furnace Run Collection ($1,250.00)
1804 C7 Draped Bust half cent, Spiked Chin, R4. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as F15, and CAC-certified as CHOICE for the assigned grade. Original chocolate brown with minor circulation marks equal to the grade. I do not think the surfaces and color are necessarily choice, but I do think the details are exceptionally sharp and even for the grade, very close to VF20, hence the CAC certification. I love rim breaks and this one provides: M5.0 with large reverse cud above OF-A which does not touch the top of the O. Overall a very nice example of a tougher variety, my EAC grade F12, and the cud is a bonus. Ex-CVM; Shawn A. Yancey #12090; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1804 C8 R1 Draped Bust Half Cent Spiked Chin NGC AU55 Furnace Run Collection ($999.00)
1804 C8 Draped Bust half cent, Spiked Chin, R1. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by NGC as AU55BN. Not much wear but the mint luster is subdued enough that most EAC folks would consider this EF45+ or perhaps AU50. Medium chestnut brown with traces of underlying mint red - the best way I can describe it would be to say that it desperately needs to be BRUSHED! EDS M1.0 with no trace of the crack from the top of L to the rim above. Purchased from Bellisario Rare Coin Gallery in 2010 for $1270; Furnace Run collection. 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!

1805 C1 Draped Bust half cent, Small 5 NO Stems, R2-. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as F12. More importantly, this is a major MINT ERROR that last sold in the EAC 2006 auction as lot #24, where it was described as: "1805 C-1 R2- VG8. Stemless Wreath. Struck over off-center Reverse Brockage. Glossy medium brown with chocolate toning in protected areas, the reverse slightly mottled. Smooth, attractive surfaces, a fine hairline scratch in the field before the face being the only notable mark. Double struck. The first strike was an off center reverse brockage struck about 60% off center. The second strike was normal, and the incuse reverse brockage impression shows clearly in the field before the portrait. RIC from the normal but off center reverse impression sows on the rim over AM. An attractive multiple mint error. Removed from an NGC slab graded VG10, and the double struck over brockage feature is noted on the NGC label, which is included." Thank God for that description, because it would have been difficult for me to come up with that! In the 2006 EAC auction this coin sold for $1500 + 10% = $1650, and it is now in the PCGS F12 holder as seen in the photos. Ex-EAC 2006 05/06/06 lot 24 at $1650; Steve Grabski; Shawn A.

This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS63BN, and it was not sent to CAC due to time constraints. This is one of the top ten coins graded at PCGS, with two MS65, two MS64, and about a half-dozen MS63 including this coin. This coin's last public appearance was the Goldberg's auction of 02/19/18, where it was described by Bob Grellman as: "1805 C-1 R2- Repunched 5 PCGS graded MS63 Brown. Lustrous medium steel brown and chocolate with frosty tan faded down from mint color in protected areas, particularly on the reverse. The only mark is an arc of darker olive brown toning from the L in LIBERTY through the curls to the lowest curl left of the date. Nicely struck E-MDS, Manley state 1.0 late. A rim cud break involves 4 dentils right of the fraction and the reverse is rotated 20 degrees clockwise. The repunching at the top of the 5 is sharp. Our grade is MS60. The attribution and Green Tree Collection provenance are noted on the PCGS label." The PCGS Price Guide says $5500 but I am pricing this one "cheap" based on it's last APR. Ex-Chris Victor McCawley 07/29/05; The Green Tree Collection; Goldberg's 09/18/28:222:$2468; CVM; Shawn A. Yancey #12132; Furnace Run Collection.

This is the more common of the two Small 5 With Stems varieties, but both are rare and command significant premiums as Redbook varieties. This example is M2.0 with very prominent bulge in front of face. Ex-Tom Reynolds; Shawn A. Yancey #12093; Furnace Run Collection.

1806 C2 Draped Bust half cent, Small 6 With Stems, R4. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as AG3. The obverse is unevenly struck and/or worn with the date strong and LIBERTY weak - I guess that is how you would want it since the Small 6 is more important. The reverse is much stronger and more even, and grades G4 on it's own merits. Glossy light-medium brown color with mostly smooth surfaces especially for this grade. Pretty nice for a low-grade, PCGS-certified major Redbook variety. Furnace Run collection.

1807 C1 R1 Draped Bust Half Cent LDS PCGS EF45 Furnace Run Collection ($999.00)
1807 C1 Draped Bust half cent, R1. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF45, and this coin is absolutely GORGEOUS! I think the die state fooled PCGS: this is actually a nearly-choice AU58 with the most incredible glossy peanut butter tan brown that you can imagine. I say "nearly-choice" because a glass shows some incredibly micro hairlines on the portrait, so fine that you might not even see them clearly in the photos. Otherwise this coin would be super-choice, and even so, I certainly consider it AU58 net AU50+ and PLUS because the eye appeal is so incredible. Definitely a very late die state: M3.0 with dentilation gone and mushy fields, and reverse legend tops very shallow. I hope my photos convey how beautiful this coin is in person! AND PS: if you are looking for a sharp early die state with denticles, please check out the EDS PCGS VF20 CAC that we have for sale on the Duplicates page! Ex-Ebay 2011; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1808 C3 R1 Draped Bust Half Cent ANACS AU50 Furnace Run Duplicate ($850.00)
1808 C3 Draped Bust Half Cent, Normal Date, R1. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by ANACS as AU50 in an older small white holder. This coin has GORGEOUS color and eye appeal with rainbow hues on each side. However, I suspect that rainbow comes from an ancient cleaning or brushing, and this coin was NOT submitted to PCGS for crossover. I will conservatively brand this coin as AU50 net EF40, and certainly still Average thanks to the great color. M4.0; crack rim thru NI to leaf below; berries still mostly visible on reverse. Purchased from Northeast Numismatics in 2012; Furnace Run duplicate. 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!
1808 C3 R1 Draped Bust Half Cent Normal Date PCGS EF40 Furnace Run Collection ($850.00)
1808 C3 Draped Bust half cent, Normal Date, R1. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF40, and it was not sent to CAC due to time constraints. This example has really nice color and sharp details, with only some scattered minor signs of circulation on each side. A very glossy and attractive example in a nice mid-range grade. M2.0 with vertical rust streaks in right field. Ex-Shawn A. Yancey #12130; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1809 C2 R3 Classic Head Half Cent PCGS EF40 Furnace Run Collection ($850.00)
1809 C2 Classic Head half cent, Normal Date, R3. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as EF40, and it is a gorgeous glossy dark chocolate brown with original surfaces and very nice eye appeal. I suspect the coin did not sticker at CAC due to a well-hidden nick on the neck just left of the hair curl. Otherwise this is a really nice example despite that tiny nick. M2.0 with crack rim star 1 through stars 2-6; no reverse cud in dentils above F A. Ex-CVM 2015; Furnace Run collection. 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!
1809 C3 R1 Classic Head Half Cent PCGS MS62BN Furnace Run Collection ($1,100.00)
1809 C3 Classic Head half cent, Normal Date, R3. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS62BN, and this example has gorgeous golden brown luster overflowing from both sides. Really nice color, surfaces, and eye appeal. The only defect is a tiny rim bump above the D in UNITED on the reverse. That tiny bump can be seen in my photo, BUT it does NOT show clearly in hand. Exceptional color and eye appeal. M1.0 with obverse denticles strong except for above the head; reverse rotated slightly. This example has sold three times over the past 15 years at Heritage: 05/04/05 lot 5061 at $1035; 11/02/05 lot 69 at $758; and 02/01/09 lot 7118 at $805.

1809 C4 R2 Classic Head Half Cent Circle Inside Zero PCGS VF20 Furnace Run Collection ($499.00)
1809 C4 Classic Head half cent, Circle Inside Zero, R2. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as VF20. This is the Redbook variety with a tiny circle inside the zero of the date, and that feature is very clear on this example. Original dark chocolate brown with solid VF20 details on both sides, although the late die state M2.0 shown here results in weak denticles and a somewhat mushy appearance, especially at the bottom of the wreath. The Circle Inside Zero variety is NOT listed on the PCGS label. Purchased from Reeded Edge in 2009; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1809/6 C5 R1 Classic Head Half Cent Overdate PCGS AU55 Furnace Run Collection ($850.00)
1809/6 C5 Classic Head half cent, 9 Over Inverted 9, R1. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as AU55, and this coin faces up as an UNC with glossy chocolate brown color with golden luster showing underneath on both sides. In fact, my consignor purchased this coin as a raw MS60+. It certainly has the look of a much higher grade, but I do see some wear on the highest points of the hair, so the PCGS assessment is spot-on. Both sides are nearly mark-free but a strong glass does reveal some minor nicks on the obverse, and I mean MINOR. This is an early-die state example with the 9 Over Inverted 9 feature clear. M1.0 with crack rim stars 4-6; dentilation mostly strong; rust pit beneath second A in AMERICA. Purchased from Dr. Eugene Bruder in 2010; Furnace Run collection. 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!

This is the Redbook variety with a 9 struck over inverted 9 giving it the appearance of a 9/6 overdate. Gorgeous glossy dark chocolate brown with bold details. A glass shows some tiny nicks on the obverse plus some buildup at AM on the reverse. The 9/6 feature is quite bold, and this is a very nice and solid example. M1.0; crack rim stars 4-6; Breen's rust pit below second A. Purchased from "MM" in 2009; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1810 C1 R1 Classic Head Half Cent PCGS AU50 Furnace Run Collection ($999.00)
1810 C1 Classic Head half cent, the only variety, R1. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as AU50. Absolutely no wear to speak of so certainly AU from the standpoint of actual wear, but there is not enough luster for an AU so my EAC grade on this coin is EF45+. Extremely sharp and attractive dark chocolate brown, with the typical strike that causes the left side to be stronger than the right. Really a nice example for the grade. Ex-DLRC 03/03/08:$1035; Bowers & Merena 08/07/10:$747.50; DLRC 09/06/10:$1024; Furnace Run collection.

1810 C1 R1 Classic Head Half Cent PCGS MS62BN CAC Furnace Run Collection ($3,300.00)
1810 C1 Classic Head half cent, the only variety, R1. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS62BN, and CAC-certified as CHOICE for the assigned grade. Lustrous medium brown with traces of lighter mint red peaking through on both sides. Hard to tell why this coin is not MS63BN, because the only real mark I see is a VERY light nick above the A in HALF on the reverse. Otherwise, this one appears to easily be MS63BN or higher, and that is certainly the reason for the CAC sticker. Only one die state for these, although this does appear to be a later strike with flat star centers, a strong die crack through stars 4-7, and minor weakness on the right side of both obverse and reverse. Lighter color and much more lustrous in person. Really a nice example for the grade, certainly EAC MS60+. Ex-Kevin Vinton 2018; Furnace Run Collection. 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!
1811 C2 R3 Classic Head Half Cent PCGS G6 Furnace Run Collection ($550.00)

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!
1825 C1 R3 Classic Head Half Cent PCGS AU Details Furnace Run Duplicate ($499.00)
1825 C1 Classic Head Half Cent, R3. A duplicate from the Furnace Run collection, authenticated and graded by PCGS as AU Details, Surfaces Smoothed. GORGEOUS! The peanut butter brown color and glossy surfaces give this coin incredible eye appeal. I do not see any evidence of smoothing, and my original guess was the top stars on the left which looked pretty flat, but if you look at the Manley book, that is normal. Regardless of the libel on the label, the eye appeal of this coin cannot be overstated. A perfect coin for an album and a beautiful example of the tougher of the two varieties for 1825. M3.0; several light clash marks reverse, oval lump between bases F-A. Purchased on Ebay in 2011; Furnace Run duplicate. 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!

1825 C2 Classic Head half cent, R1. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS62BN, and it was not sent to CAC due to time constraints. This coin has made two appearances at Heritage and another at Stacks, and the Stacks auction 03/05/19 lot 348 described the coin as such: "A wonderfully original example splashed with mottled antique copper, autumn-brown and pale gold patina. Minot spot at the left obverse border, but otherwise we note an uncommonly smooth satin texture for the assigned grade. Pleasing and desirable Mint State quality for the Classic Head half cent type. Manley Die State 1.0." Close examination clearly reveals that this is M2.0 and not M1.0, with fine rust in front of the portrait and on the reverse left of H and C. Regardless, this is a very nice example with great eye appeal. Ex-Heritage 10/22/09:61:$978; unknown; Heritage 03/05/19:384:$1320; unknown; Heritage 04/26/20:7032:$1320; Shawn A.

This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS63BN, and it is a gorgeous peanut butter tan brown example with a couple splashes of darker maroon toning on each side. I will call this the "peanut butter and jelly" coin! A strong glass reveals no marks on either side, but it does show the die file lines at the top of the hair and right of the date to be incredibly bold. M3.0 with die file lines above head and right of 6; crack rim to star 2 reach toward star 3. Purchased from Greg Hannigan in 2011; Furnace Run collection. 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!

1840-1849 Braided Hair half cent, set of 10 copies. These are copies, NOT genuine coins, and they are from the estate of Arthur E. Young of Red Lion, PA, who passed away in 1956. So these are "old" copies. They are somewhat crude yet still quite interesting and very collectable as a set since most of us will never own 10 GENUINE proof half cents!

1853 C1 R1 Braided Hair Half Cent PCGS MS62BN Furnace Run Collection ($335.00)
1853 Braided Hair half cent, R2. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS62BN, and it was not sent to CAC due to time constraints. This is a glossy medium-dark chocolate brown example with a needle-sharp strike. EDS M1.0 with bold dentilation and clear reverse die file line inside the right arm of the first T in STATES. One of the more affordable examples from this collection!

1854 C1 R1 Braided Hair Half Cent PCGS MS64BN CAC Furnace Run Collection ($650.00)
1854 Braided Hair half cent, R2. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS64BN, CAC-certified as CHOICE for the assigned grade! I think that sticker got thrown on here quickly thanks to the wonderfully lustrous surfaces that feature very attractive sea green undertones. This coin was purchased on Ebay in 2010 in an NGC MS65BN holder for $1320, and when it crossed into this collection it ended up a point lower at MS64BN. Typically that 1-point difference is hard to split hairs over, and I had to look hard to find a tiny nick on each side. I am not going to tell you where I found them because they are well-hidden and quite tiny! This will be our "Where's Waldo" coin! Well-struck with full star centers and bold denticles on both sides, but the color and luster are the real stars on this coin. Looks like M2.0; no tiny dash left of base in 1; plain rust lump on top of I in UNITED. Purchased on Ebay in 2010 as NGC MS65BN for $1320 and the NGC label remains with the coin; Furnace Run collection. 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!
1855 C1 R1 Braided Hair Half Cent NGC MS65BN CAC Furnace Run Collection ($1,100.00)

Certainly deserving of the CAC designation. Purchased from Northeast Numismatics in 2010; Furnace Run collection. 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!
1855 C1 R1 Braided Hair Half Cent PCGS MS65BN Furnace Run Collection ($1,100.00)
1855 Braided Hair half cent, R1. This is the front-line example for the Furnace Run PCGS Registry Set of US half cents from 1793 to 1857 by Cohen Variety. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS65BN. This coin did not sticker at CAC, and I suspect it is because of one tiny nick in the right obverse field. But frankly I still consider this a PLUS coin because the color, strike, and eye appeal are so nice. Bold even luster on each side, highlighted by underlying maroon toning that is quite attractive. Very nice in hand. Ex-Shawn A. Yancey #12126; Furnace Run Collection. Without exception, my coins are sharper and more attractive in hand than in my photos.
