I recently picked up a pretty nice 1828 13 star 1/2 cent. Unfortunately I don’t have a decent resource for the Cohen varieties and can’t find much online. This has made me order another book, but for now is anyone versed in these?

The out-of-alignment, left-tilted numeral 2 marks this as C-3, also known as BW-2 and Breen-2. Bowers gives an estimated population of 5000 to 7,000. This is the variety that was found in the Collins Find of 1894.

Thanks Bob. That’s what I was hoping for.

I guess it’s fitting that I bought this in a shop in the DC area
