First half cent purchase
I have been collecting large cents, mostly late dates, for the last two years but recently got interested in half cents. I was looking around on ebay and found one I liked, put in my bid, and won the item for a little under my max. It's an 1804 C4, here are the pictures:
As I learn more about the series, thanks to the Manley book, they are becoming more and more appealing. I find the number of varieties is manageable, compared to large cents. With a little bit of study I can identify varieties without the books which make it a very enjoyable series, quickly becoming an addiction
Any thoughts on grade, I have it as 5 net 3? Also, I think it's die state 1 as there is no die crack by the denominator, any thoughts?
