Gfhcoins's 1808 Draped Bust Half Cent Fine Details #8280

This is Gfhcoins's 1808 Draped Bust Half Cent Fine Details #8280.

The half cent coin was produced in the United States from 1793-1857. The half-cent piece was made of 100% copper. It was slightly smaller than a modern U.S. quarter, with a diameter of 23.5 mm (0.93 inch).

Although it is the lowest face value coin ever produced by the United States, given nineteenth century price levels, in terms of purchasing power, the 1857 half cent would be equivalent to $0.12 in current money.
