  • That is a beautiful half cent.
    I would like to guess that it's a 64.

    Looks like it was put in a collection right from the mint. Were there any original rolls of those?

    Well struck half cent. Radials full in every star. Clean cheek and fields. I guess MS65BN.

    MS63BN. It's hard to find fully struck examples like that, so my grade guess may be too harsh.

    Banger strike... I'll say MS63BN too...

    That is a really great Half Cent... My guess will be MS64. Cheers, RickO

    That's a real nice coin!

  • gumby1234gumby1234 Posts: 5,425 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I will guess 55. Looks to be a bit of wear and from the photos it doesn't appear very lustrous. Nice looking coin.

    She looks nice. I'll guess MS64BN.

    I'm in the minority this time, 55 to me.

    Nice clean pickup!

    The obverse does not appear to have enough luster for the Mint Stats grades.

    Nice one!

    I am not seeing this as un-circulated like many here. Surfaces look to have been cleaned at some point with some toning remaining in the edges of the devices. I am going to say AU Details (Net 53).

    Compare to this.


    NGC graded this MS-62, Brown. Back in the mid 1960s, I bought this from the coin department in Gimbels Department Store in Philadelphia as a VF. :o

    Must be well graded if beaned too

    I went by the obverse scan , glad for you it is, what it is. Cool!

  • dsessomdsessom Posts: 2,212 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I guess I'm not as crap of a grader as I thought. Early copper is tough for me, but not as tough as Buffalo nickels. LOL

    At times I find it amazing how coins graded at different times. Yours is a perfect example.

    fWIW, my original grade was 58; however, when I looked at it again, I could not see any wear, so I was settling on 63bn. Fully original to my eye.
