Impressive Choice AU 1795 Liberty Cap Half Cent to be Featured in our November 2015 Baltimore Auction

Impressive Choice AU 1795 Liberty Cap Half Cent to be Featured in our November 2015 Baltimore Auction

By James McCartney, Numismatist & Cataloger, U.S. Coins

The first two decades of United States half cent production saw numerous design alterations, both purposeful and unintentional. Though several contemporary denominations exhibit similar diversity, half cents are intriguing in that these changes sometimes involved the often-overlooked third side of a coin, the edge. These distinct variations are both exciting and challenging for specialists of the series, and the 1795 half cent is certainly no exception.

Thoughts on Rarity, Part III

Thoughts on Rarity, Part III

By Harvey G. Stack, Founder

In this article I continue my thoughts on rarity by stating that you cannot make a rarity and trying to create a rarity usually results in failure. Trying to manipulate supply and demand rarely ends well for anyone involved. This is especially true if one attempts to do this as a means to control the market for personal gain and not with the goal of owning and enjoying a coin or other collectible.
