From my personal 1793 Mint Set collection. 1793 C3 Liberty Cap half cent, Hooked Bust Line, R3. Authenticated and graded by PCGS as VG8. So here is what you need to know about this coin: that nick on the obverse which is apparent in my enlarged photos is nearly invisible in hand. Why? Because it's exactly where Liberty's lips are parted, so unless you are looking at those giant photos or with a strong glass, you just don't see it. What you DO see is an absolutely GORGEOUS coin with bold VG8 details including an arrogantly strong date, full reverse details, and fantastic cameo color of lighter peanut butter tan emerging from shadowy dark chocolate fields. The eye appeal in hand cannot be overstated, and this is certainly the nicest VG8 1793 half cent that I have ever handled. As soon as I saw this coin in person, it went straight into my collection and I suspect it will stay there for a LONG time! My EAC grade is VG8 net VG7 and PLUS. Purchased from Capital City Coins on 07/26/23. I have no plans to sell this example because it is the perfect grade and price for my 1793 mint set, but feel free to make me an offer, especially if you have another 1793 half cent to offer me in trade!
