About Half Cents (Cohen Varieties)

Important Note Regarding Pricing of Half Cents by Cohen Variety:

Roger S. Cohen's seminal work titled "American Half Cents," first published 1971, is the definitive reference for serious collectors of this coinage. Until now, pricing has never been effectively published for this specialized area. CDN Publishing is proud to work with noted expert, Christopher McCawley, a dealer and auctioneer of these items with many decades of experience.

In working with McCawley, we determined that it is not practical to match up "type" coins from the half cent series by the stringent standards placed by specialists (i.e. EAC members) with the market-based pricing we use for half cents in our other pricing grids. Therefore, we caution users of this price guide to compare values published in both places to best determine market values for these early coppers.

Keep in mind that all early American copper issues (colonials, half cents and large cents) are an especially challenging area to determine and fix accurate market values. The issues listed in CDN publications represent the wholesale prices of coins that are problem free and strictly graded, especially as they compare to other examples of the same issue. Any number of factors can influence (decrease or increase) the value of early large cents, including mint-made problems (planchet flaws, poor strikes, etc.) and post-mint problems (corrosion, improper cleaning, environmental damage, and more). The prices listed here are intended to serve as a guideline and starting point for discussion and negotiations of valuation, but the CDN editors strongly encourage buyers to seek expert advice in this field before purchasing coins of high value.
