Description:
Rare 1840 Half Cent, Proof 66 Brown
1840 1/2 C Restrike PR66 Brown NGC. B-3, Low R.7. Of the greatest importance, proof Half Cents are always in demand from type collectors as well as from those who collect half cents by date. Characterized by small berries on the reverse and file marks over RICA, the second restrikes are rated as Low R.7 with only a couple of dozen believed extant. This is a deep, iridescently toned proof that, when closely examined, reveals multiple layerings of purple and blue patination over each side. The fields show evidence of the coin having been struck from a striated die which not only produced deep reflectivity but also left evidence of the striations, especially on the reverse. The surfaces overall are very clean with the only noticeable flaw being a single carbon spot midway down the neck of Liberty. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (7/04).(#1251) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 26Z5, PCGS# 1251)
