1845 Rare Original Strike
C-1, B-1 Half Cent, PR64 Brown

1845 1/2 C Original PR64 Brown NGC. CAC. C-1, B-1, High R.6. This is only the third appearance of an 1845 Original half cent in any of our sales over the past 20 years. The date shows slight evidence of repunching, especially below the 5, and the entire date is left of center in the exergual space. Additional repunching is evident below the E and T in LIBERTY. The stars are normally formed. The die is crisp and well formed with no cracks, clash marks, or other anomalies. The Large Berries reverse die is similarly well-made without defects. Just over a dozen 1845 Original half cents are known. The obverse exhibits bold details with deep blue patina intermingled with the olive-brown surfaces. The left part of the obverse border is bright reddish-orange. The reverse is essentially olive-brown with delicate blue overtones. Our EAC grade PR62.
