Description

1848 B-2 First Restrike Half Cent, PR60

1848 1/2 C Restrike PR60 Uncertified. B-1, R.6. EAC PR60.
An ideal opportunity to obtain a proof issue in the 1840s. Breen calls the 1848 First Restrike the most plentiful die combination of the proofs from the decade.
Deep brownish-orange on both sides with considerable lime-green at and just inside the borders. The strike is sharp on the central obverse and reverse details, as well as the stars. The fields are mildly reflective, but lack the deep mirrored appearance of most proofs.
Ex: J.R. Frankenfield (Superior, 2/2001), lot 166.
From The Colonel Steven Ellsworth Collection of U.S. Half Cents.
(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 26ZK, PCGS# 1299)
