Description:
Original Proof 1843 Coronet Half Cent Rarity
1843 1/2 C Original PR58 PCGS. B-1a, R.6. Writing in 1983, Walter Breen states that at least two original proof 1843 Half Cents accidentally escaped into circulation. This may be one of those coins, but we stress that the overall eye appeal would do justice to an unimpaired grade. There are no areas of excessive rub, and distracting contact marks are minimal and not readily evident. Rich dark brown toning envelops both sides with suggestions of olive color intermixed on the obverse. (NGC ID# 223E, PCGS# 1266)
