Description:
The Cohen Plate 1841 Original Half Cent
1841 1/2 C Original. PO-2, B-1, R.6. PR63 Brown NGC. PR60 EAC. Small date; Large berries. The obverse is plated in the second edition of Cohen. A prominent die crack joins stars 3 through 6 and just misses star 7. Most examples of the 1840 and 1841 Original Half Cents show faint traces of edge reeding. Apparently the planchets were reeded, and then struck with a plain collar that crushed these edge reeds. Evidence can still be seen on those coins that have not been encapsulated. In his Complete Encyclopedia, Breen stated that about 24 examples of this variety were known to him. Today it is probably at the low end of the R.6 spectrum, with nearly 30 examples known. Dark walnut with pale steel-blue toning on the obverse. The reverse is exclusively dark walnut color. Light hairlines on both sides limit the grade of this example. Breen Die State III.
Ex: Delaware Coin (11/28/1969). Envelope Included.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26Z6, PCGS# 1254)
