1797 1/2C 1 above 1 AU50BN PCGS #1042

Cohen 1. 1 above 1. Initially, the 1 of the date was punched too high, then punched again in the correct position. This is one of the coolest naked eye blunders in American Numismatics. CAC sticker. Purchased from Great Collections June 2019 auction of the Edgemont Collection.

1804 1/2C Spiked Chin AU58BN PCGS #1075

Spiked Chin. Cohen 8. Manley Die State 3.0. I wanted to own one of these from the time that I saw it listed in my first Red Book in 1962. From the November 2014 Heritage Beverly Hills sale where it was partially described as: " A medium brown example of the famous " Spiked Chin " variety, caused when a bolt ( or some other hard object ) was struck into the obverse die. The surfaces of the present coin are unblemished and attractive.".

1855 1/2C AU58+ BN PCGS #1233
