Description

Elusive 1850 C-1 Half Cent, R.6, PR63 Brown

1850 1/2 C PR63 Brown PCGS. C-1, B-1, R.6 as a proof. Also attributed as Cohen PO-12 from his second edition half cent reference, with only about 15 to 20 proofs known to survive. Breen stated about a dozen proofs had been seen or reported in the early 1980s, and the number is slightly larger today. We have records of 12 different certified proofs and 10 other uncertified proofs, some of which may be mere prooflike business strikes.
Some reflectivity is visible on each side beneath the yellowish-green and deeper steel toning on the obverse. A few dots or splashes of light orange can be seen on the obverse as well. The reverse has evenly distributed blue-green with traces of light orange inside many letters. The obverse has a small mark on Liberty's cheek and a few others in the fields. EAC 55.
