1803 Cohen 3 Half Cent AU50 w color
1803 C-3, B-3 Half Cent, Unc Details
The \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’Cross-Eyed Zeros\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’
1803 C-3, B-3, R.1 — Cleaned — NGC Details. Unc. Our EAC grade AU50. 87.6 grains. Breen Die State VIII. Manley Die State 4.0. Fuhrman Die State 5. Advanced cracks are present on both sides with a sharp die bulge at the 18 of the date. The zeros in the denomination appear to touch on this reverse, giving it the Cross-Eyed Zeros name. The die bulge on the obverse of later die states provides immediate identification while the reverse feature will identify early state coins. Although this example has been cleaned, it exhibits outstanding cinnamon-brown surfaces with wispy blue overtones and excellent eye appeal. This is a lovely piece well worthy of consideration.
