2538 1793 Breen 1, Cohen 1 VF-30 $9,000.00
1793 Breen 1, Cohen 1. Detail of Very Fine-30 but the coin exhibits a tiny nick that extends from...
Detail of Very Fine-30 but the coin exhibits a tiny nick that extends from the obverse rim through half of the cap. Pleasing brown patina with just very minor microgranularity. The strike is adequate although the center of the reverse is weak because this coin was struck during the die state II period of the dies. A very attractive coin despite the problems and a coin that should receive...  more
2539 1793 B.1, C.1 AG-3 $750.00
1793 B.1, C.1. The obverse is that of a Strong Good-4 or better in terms of wear. The reverse is About...
The obverse is that of a Strong Good-4 or better in terms of wear. The reverse is About Good-3. Either side exhibits a noticeable degree of granularity beneath deep chocolate-brown patina. The date and LIBERTY on the obverse are entirely legible as is much of the central definition. The reverse exhibits partial legends, as well as most of the outline of the wreath. This rare and highly important...  more

1793 Br.2, C.2 (R-3). Long 7, L above Brow, Crowded Fraction. About Uncirculated-50 or better. An...
About Uncirculated-50 or better. An exceptional coin that boasts all the features a collector hopes to find in an early Half Cent. The color is light brown throughout with traces of tan and blue. The strike is full for this later die state of the obverse. Well centered on the planchet, with strong doubling noted on Liberty's profile and primary hair curl below her ear, a feature sometimes seen on...  more

1795 Br.2a, C.2a (R-3). Punctuated Date, Lettered Edge. Thick Planchet. Choice About Uncirculated-55....
Choice About Uncirculated-55. Early die state with the die lump on the reverse covering three denticles. Here is an exceptional and highly desirable example of this issue, boasting wonderfully clean surfaces and attractive medium brown color with tantalizing reddish tints in the fields. Careful study reveals two exceedingly thin parallel hairline scratches on Liberty's neck, and a tiny...  more

1795 Br.2a, C.2a (R-3). Punctuated Date, Lettered Edge. HALF Below Leaf Tips. Fine-12 but showing...
Fine-12 but showing signs of an ever so gentle cleaning long ago on the obverse. Early reverse die state shows minor swelling through 'MER'. The surfaces reveal some decidedly light porosity on either side, but the overall appearance is uniform and quite pleasing. The color is a handsome olive-brown. Excellent reverse definition and sharp edge lettering complete this coin's roster of...  more

About Uncirculated-50, perhaps a bit better. Excellent detail over hard mostly nongranular surfaces. The color is a medium ebony with some lustre still present. A few light marks but none of any consequence. A respectable type coin.

2544 1833 Br.1, C.1. Mint State-64. Brown MS-64 $900.00
1833 Br.1, C.1. Mint State-64. Brown. A lovely coin for the collector who appreciates quality of strike...
A lovely coin for the collector who appreciates quality of strike and richness of color. Especially notable are the depth of Liberty's curls and the bi-color brown and brassy hues which are accented by magenta and yellow tints in the fields. The fields themselves are boldly reflective, giving the initial impression of a Proof, and show minor a few unobtrusive surface handling marks in...  more
