The United States' first Half Cent, the 1793 is also important as a one-year type. It is the only issue in the Liberty Cap series of 1793-1797 with the obverse portrait facing to the left. The problem as far as most collectors in today's market are concerned is that there are simply not enough examples of the 1793 from which to choose. Indeed, survivors of this 35,334-piece delivery are very scarce-to-rare in all grades, particularly when free of significant impairments.
This is a pleasing coin in the context of the assigned grade, the surfaces bathed in warm, even, orange-brown patina. The rims are softly defined, and moderate wear is noted, but the focal features are well outlined with bolder definition in the more recessed areas. There are no individually mentionable abrasions, which is just one more reason why this coin would make a pleasing addition to a circulated type set. The reverse impression is rotated approximately 10% clockwise from exact coin turn.
PCGS# 1000.
