The D. Brent Pogue Collection Part III, An Appreciation

The D. Brent Pogue Collection Part III, An Appreciation

Incredible 1797 C-2 Half Cent, The Finest Known

By Q. David Bowers, Co-Founder

An American Treasure

Welcome to our description of one of the very finest half cents ever to cross the auction block! Close your eyes and think of rarities among half cents, and the two varieties of 1797 come to mind, the 1793 is of course a classic, and scattered others include 1831, 1836, the Proof-only issues of the 1840s and 1852. Unless you are a specialist or scholar, 1797 might not come to mind.
