    AU53 to 55. Details, maybe. I'm not so sure about the color. Nice coin, though.

    PS- love the quirkiness of Gobrecht's slanting fives.

    I've never had one of these larger cents in good condition, but the huge luster on them is something I want so bad. I'm saying either low MS or high AU.

    If not for needing one for the type set, I usualy avoid 1/2 cents as most have low mintages and survival rates meaning high prices and great difficulties filling even low grade sets. I've been real lucky picking up the few i need for the type set. This one being the last one/type i need (the last half cent that is) :D

    Got it. Yeah I have all the half cents but that one. I have the flowing hair head right she’s a bit crusty but has a lot of meat. My braided hair an ogh au 58 cac. Amazing no. Nice yes. And there’s far more important coins to spend bigger money on.

    It looks sharp but I fear that the photo is obscuring either a cleaning or whizzing. So my guess is AU Details.

    she has arrived :D and I have to say I see no actual signs of cleaning. Very clean surfaces, no hair scratches... I might have detailed her for "corrosion" or EnvDmg on the denticles but not for cleaning...
