Heritage writes that the issue is"with a country mile, the secret to a complete Guide Book of United States Coins number collection of Draped Bust half cents." This offered instance, ranked About Good 3 by Professional Coin Grading Service, is one of possibly 25 that exist today, nearly all in very low grades. It realized $11,100.
It has more details than you might expect in this particular grade, with nearly entire legends, a well outlined portrait on the obverse, along with a bold wreath on the reverse. Heritage also praises"deep walnut brown surfaces" which show a bit of red patina at certain factors that it characterizes as"equally microgranular." A sign on Liberty's forehead and cheekbone can function to recognize this case in future auction offerings.
The reverse die used to strike this illustration of the Cohen 1 variety, as listed in Roger Cohen's book American Half Cents: The"Little Half Sisters," also fell 1800 half cents.
