Choice Mass Half Cent
Very attractive frosty dark chocolate brown. Mint luster covers the protected areas and the strike is especially sharp. The only marks are some microscopic striations on the Indian’s skirt and a few small planchet chips left of the date (all as struck). A small flake in the dentils over the left side of the M in MASSACHUSETTS can help identify this piece. Removed from the PCGS holder but accompanied by the older green PCGS label #296.62/4472545. Our grade is consistent with the PCGS assessment. A very nice Massachusetts half cent. Weight 76.2 grains.
