Description:
Outstanding 1848 First Restrike, PR66 Brown
1848 1/2 C First Restrike PR66 Brown NGC. SR-10, B-2, High R.5. Small Berries, Doubled T in CENT. Attractive medium brown with splashes of blue iridescence in the fields, with hints of lighter red in the protected areas of the obverse and reverse. Boldly struck as expected for a proof, and this one was carefully preserved since the time of issue. The surfaces are free of distracting specks or spots, and this early proof should satisfy even the most demanding numismatist. One of the more plentiful issues from the 1840s with perhaps 40 or so known, this one is certainly one of the finer examples to survive and is worthy of any advanced half cent collection. EAC PR63. Census: 2 in 66, 0 finer (12/08).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 26ZK, PCGS# 1299)
