Published late last year, The Half Cent Handbook is the most recent entry into literature covering the denomination. Ed Fuhrman\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s planned series of books for each of the design types begins with the Draped Bust varieties from 1800 to 1808. Fuhrman identifies five die states for the 1800 half cents, and this example is his Die State 4. Likely a hoard coin, this lustrous half cent has rich olive and chocolate-brown surfaces with splashes of faded mint red on the reverse.
