A Gem quality example exhibiting a needle sharp strike on both sides, even chocolate brown color and superb, virtually mark fee surfaces. A hard, almost prooflike striking. Scarcer than its larger cousin, the Hibernia Halfpenny.
Exceptionally well struck on both sides and one of the finest of the type I have seen. This issue comes with all kinds of striking issues, mainly just soft, mushy areas somewhere on the coin. This is a rare exception that shows even chocolate brown color and nice glowing surfaces. You won’t find a better example at twice the price.
Very well struck on a virtually perfect planchet, this Fugio is another hand-picked “top of the grade’ specimen. Tougher States United variety carries a $500 premium in the Red Book in Unc. All obverse design and lettering is crisp, with a small die crack causing a few letters in “Mind Your Business” to be missing, a very minor issue with any Fugio. Reverse is well struck with and problem free. Color is an even deep chocolate brown. Easily in the top 10% of the grade overall.
*NEW* Strong even strike on both sides separates this Mass HC from most of its type. Actual facial features, and lines in the Indian’s clothing, reverse has full eagle feathers and full “HALF CENT” lettering. Distraction free surfaces and even brown color finish this exceptional type coin.
*SOLD - NEW* Pop: 1 with one graded MS66BN at PCGS. The finest Kentucky Cent I have seen and second finest graded at PCGS. Very sharply struck on superb chocolate brown surfaces, showing lovely light blue highlights and full luster. Simply AMAZING quality. Struck in England, each star in the triangle represents a state, identified by its initial letter.
*NEW* A super nice example of this scarce date. Solid, even strike with immaculate surfaces and nice chocolate brown color. Very strong for the grade. Pop is 3 – MS62, 4 – MS63 and 2 graded MS64, with none higher. There is one MS62 example shown recently sold in a Heritage auction that shows very weakly struck areas and large patches of black. Although housed in the same grade holder, this coin is a full point better.
*NEW* Absolute top of the MS62 grade, this coin is a perfect example of what SHOULD have been graded “plus”…but I guess another grading fee is required. In any event, this piece is well struck front and back with problem free surfaces and lovely even chocolate brown patina. No blotchiness or spotting which is common with this grade. Perfect for an affordable type coin.
*NEW* Both the buyer and the owner of the company I purchased this coin from said “we thought it would MS63” on separate occasions…and I can see why. Fully struck on both sides with a few minor surface ticks and nice luster on an even deep chocolate brown flan. Very nice 1805 for the price.
*NEW* A gorgeous type coin showing a needle sharp strike, great surfaces and lovely chocolate brown color with blue highlights in and around the portrait and devices on both sides. TOP End and GREAT Eye-appeal.
Solid, even strike on both sides, showing no weakness in the design or lettering. Distraction free surfaces and even slightly deep chocolate brown with some remaining luster. Very nice and affordable type.
