Description:
Elusive 1850 Half Cent PR62 Brown
1850 1/2 C PR62 Brown PCGS. B-1, C-1. Low R.7. Although the original mintage figure of this proof issue is unknown, Walter Breen speculated that only about a dozen specimens survive. Based on population data, which is hardly a scientific survey with the expanding quantity of resubmissions over the past 20 years, Breen's figure may be a trifle low but survivors still total well under 20 pieces. This specimen is quickly recognized as a proof, with broad, squared-off rims and needle sharp definition. Much of the coin's reflectivity is hidden beneath milky violet and olive-gray patina. There is no reportable carbon or obvious mishandling. Population: 3 in 62, 4 finer (3/06). EAC PR60.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 26ZP, PCGS# 1311)

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
