PCGS - The Half Cent became one of the very first denominations to circulate in the United States, debuting alongside the one-cent coin in 1793. Its production would also stop the same year as the large cent, 1857. Only 35,180 Half Cents were struck in 1857, however, United States Mint Director James Ross Snowden had an unknown number of Half Cents melted. PCGS estimates the survival of about 1,350 examples across all grades and color designations.



This particular piece, graded PCGS MS65RD set the auction record just two months ago, selling for $18,000, more than double its estimated value!

Funny how we were able to rid ourselves of the Half Cent when it became irrelevant, yet the cent hangs on.

That coin is stunning. I can see why it fetched double the estimate.
