Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1810 Half Cent is a fairly common date, but only in lower circulated grades.  High-end circulated examples, particularly those on glossy, problem-free planchets, are very scarce. In Mint State, PCGS has certified just over two dozen examples, most in the MS-63 and MS-64 grade ranges, and virtually all Brown.  The lone exception is a single MS-63 Red-Brown.  No full Red 1810 Half Cents are known to exist.
