Description & Analysis

Just two die marriages are known for 1802 half cents, and this is the only one which is readily collectable. It is scarce, but its rarity pales in comparison to that of Cohen-1.

This variety shares a common obverse die with C-1, and it reveals a very obvious 2/0 overdate. Its reverse die is of the new style first employed with 1797 cents in which the wreath has fuller leaves, and its upper right terminus displays two leaves in place of the single leaf.

The number of C-2 half cents coined is uncertain, but it has long been speculated that these comprised the two deliveries of the year 1802 which totaled 14,366 pieces. It's also possible that some of those coined in 1803 included this variety, too, which would account for its prevalence as compared to C-1.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
