Description

Elusive 1843 'Original' Half Cent, PR64 Brown

1843 1/2 C Original PR64 Brown PCGS. B-1a, R.6. The large berries in the wreath identify the "Original" Braided Hair half cents, a group that also includes some coins that Breen called "Series VII" restrikes. The strength of die file marks at stars 2, 3, and 12 were the distinguishing feature, and they are quite bold on this piece. It is boldly detailed, although with somewhat dull fields that only show slight reflectivity. Some minor surface marks should aid in provenance research. It is believed that less than two dozen of these coins still exist today. EAC PR60.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 223E, PCGS# 1266)
