Half Cent

United States Half Cent
The half cent or “half penny” is the lowest denomination United States coin and minting of it started in 1793. Minting of the half cent ended in 1857. There were five variations in the design. In 1793 the design was referred to as the Liberty Cap Left because of Miss Liberty facing left. In 1794 and until 1797 the Liberty Cap design faced right. From 1800 to 1808 the design of the half cent was the Draped Bust. From 1809 until 1837 there was the Classic Head. And lastly in 1837 the final design design of the half cent was the Braided Hair. This is a great type coin and is a must addition to complete any United States type set collection.
