Gordon Wrubel: The finest recorded 1794 Low Relief half cent, graded MS 66 BN, is a sight to behold. Its pristline medium chocolate brown surfaces exhibit full mint bloom. The glow of faded mint red is evident in the protected areas of both sides. The strike is almost perfectly centered showing full dentilation on both sides. Miss Liberty's hair is crisply defined, showing all the finely graved detail. When passing through the grading room this lovely copper captured the mind and heart of everyone that viewed it.
