1788 Massachusetts Half Cent Ryder 1-A XF40


A nice high-end example of this scarce 1788 Half Cent.

This piece shows nice lighter brown color throughout with excellent eye appeal for the variety.  Just a few light circulation marks, consistent with the grade.  The all important Half Cent is fully visible on the reverse.

The Ryder 1-A is significantly rarer than the often seen Ryder 1-B Half Cent.  This variety does not often come in grades above VF20.  A great coin for the specialist.

From the Peter Scherff Collection, Stacks 3/10
