1840 B-3 Second Restrike Half Cent, PR63 Brown1840 1/2 C Second Restrike PR63 Brown NGC. B-3, R.6. EAC PR60+. The series of proof half cents from 1840 to 1849 were all coined from common reverse dies, and are known as Originals, First Restrikes, and Second Restrikes. Originals have large berries in the wreath. First Restrikes have small berries, and also have the T in cent sharply doubled along the right side of the upright. Second Restrikes have small berries, and also have die file marks from the border over RICA.
A lovely example with fully reflective fields and mint frost on the devices. Both sides have an attractive blend of pale green and medium brown, with hints of original red on the reverse. The Superior cataloger notes that this piece was once in an NGC PR64 Red and Brown holder.
Ex: Superior (2/2003), lot 134.
