Description

Gem Proof 1845 Restrike Half Cent
Ex: Jules Reiver

1845 1/2 C Restrike PR65 Brown NGC. SR-22, B-3, R.6. Small date; Small berries, file marks at RICA. Early state of the reverse die with file marks clear, and diagonal striae fully visible. This is the plate coin in the second edition of Cohen. Number 14 of 19 examples listed by Richard Coleman in his Monograph of Second Restrike Proof Half Cents. The date has the digit 5 leaning to the right and distinctly recut.
The obverse has intermingled olive and chocolate-brown tones while the reverse is fully olive. The fields are mildly reflective and not deeply mirrored, as expected on these Proofs. Some design weakness is noted, especially on Liberty's hair strands over the ear, and on some of the leaves in the wreath. A mild abrasion has left a thin line of bright copper color from the top of Liberty's head to the border just below star 9. This example appears to qualify as Series V in Breen's notation. MRB PR60.
Ex: Stack's (4/1962), lot 235; 1976 ANA (Stack's), lot 195; Superior (10/1977), lot 151; Julian Leidman (7/18/1978); The Jules Reiver Collection (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 19136.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 26ZD, PCGS# 1281)

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
