Description

Scarce Choice Red 1857 Half Cent, C-1, B-1

1857 1/2 C MS64 Red NGC. C-1, B-1, R.2. The final date of the denomination, as the half cent (as well as the large cent) was removed from production in favor of the copper-nickel Flying Eagle small cent. 1857 is a scarcer date, and the mintage of 35,180 pieces is the smallest of any business strike Coronet half cent. This brick-red near-Gem has a reasonable strike and an especially clean reverse. Moderate obverse carbon is all that limits the grade. Housed in a prior generation holder. EAC 63. Census: 6 in 64 Red, 2 finer (6/08).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26Z3, PCGS# 1241)
