A deep golden-brown example of the first year of the denomination, and a coin that is actually attractive despite the uniformly microgranular appearance afforded by a loupe. The 1793 half cent represents a unique one-year-only design type in the series. On the obverse, Liberty faces left, while in the other dates of the Liberty Cap, Flowing Hair design type, 1794-1797, her portrait faces right; the next time Liberty faces left in the denomination is with the 1809-1836 Classic Head design type. Don't dismiss this specimen outright, as its appearance is finer than the PCGS label intimates and provides interested half cent specialists and type collectors alike an opportunity to obtain a suitable specimen without a tremendous cash outlay.
