Picked this one up. Love how the coin is struck dead center of the planchet. Many examples are are all over the place in the planchet. 1st set of pics is from the seller. Lightened the color in the 2nd set of pics to see the coin devices better. Thoughts? Thanks!

Seller's photos.



Lightened photos.

To my eyes it looks like a F-15, but the actual grade may more be like XF-40 .

Bit of a weak strike I assume, but I'd say it makes xf45 as a guess...pics are kinda Pixelated on my end.

I grade this as simply awesome. My soul can't nitpick this because its so far out of my range. Well done regardless of where it lands around VF. That's an incredible piece of US history right there.

I'll say VF-30, but that's a stab in the dark. Remarkable coin.

Wow! Way out of my league. I think the only 1793 Half Cent I've ever seen in real life was in the ANA collection.

What a fantastic coin!

It's a coin I always wished for and will never own. Great example! You're a lucky Dawg to own it.

I'm not going to even guess the grade.

I like this coin a lot, to be honest this is the first time seeing one of these.

Very kool coin

I can't decide so I had to flip a coin it came up EF40. Did my contact help you find this one? I've been looking but just kept coming up short on one nice enough, and in the right price range. This one is a beauty.

Hi westcoin. I did try to look for Greg in Baltimore but couldn't make it out to the show until Saturday and he wasn't there. There were a few 1793 Half Cents there but wasn't able to make a deal. This one came from L&C in CA. They had a couple of options and they worked with me on the price.

This was NGC's opinion. I thought it was nice for the grade.
