Expert Comments

Ron Guth: This was the only use of the obverse die. Initially, the 1 of the date was punched too high, then punched again in the proper position.

The reverse die of this variety was also used earlier on:
1797 Cohen 2

The Eliasberg 1797 1 over 1 Half Cent (Lot 409), formerly in an NGC MS65BN holder was graded PCGS MS64BN in July 2009.
