Description:
Extremely Rare 1832 C-2, B-2 Half Cent, PR64 Brown
1832 1/2 C PR64 Brown PCGS. C-2, B-2, R.7 as a proof. Housed in a first-generation PCGS holder. Only seven or eight proofs of this variety are known, and less than 20 proofs of all three varieties exist, according to information in Walter Breen's Half Cent Encyclopedia. While that reference is out-of-date today, the Census information still provides an excellent indication of rarity.
Breen lists the following in his Census:
1. Mougey Collection (Thomas Elder, 9/1910), lot 316; Lyman H. Low; Essex Numismatics; later, Breen Plate Coin.
2. Alison Jackman (Henry Chapman (2/1918), lot 887; David W. Valentine (Thomas Elder, 12/1927), lot 536a; Hillyer Ryder (New Netherlands, 44th Sale, 6/1954); , lot 310; Philip Showers; Willis duPont; private collection.
3. New Netherlands, 51st Sale; Stack's (3/1975), lot 851; Missouri Cabinet.
4. T. James Clarke (Abe Kosoff (4/1956), lot 464; Norweb Collection.
5. Brobston Collection; Stack's, 1/1963 FPL.
6. Connecticut State Library.
7. Henry C. Miller Collection (Thomas Elder, 4/1917), lot 1058.
8. Bruce Abrash.
We are certain that this piece is different from numbers 1, 3, 4, and 6. It should be easy to identify, with several toning spots on both sides. The fields are mildly reflective, with light cameo contrast. An exquisite example that is sharply struck from perfect dies, this piece has amazing lime-green, gold, and lilac toning. EAC PR60.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 26YT, PCGS# 1195)
