Description

Seldom-Offered 1855 Half Cent, PR62 Brown

1855 1/2 C PR62 Brown PCGS. C-1, B-1, R.5 as a proof. The only variety known. Breen (1983) estimates that just 35 to 40 proofs survive. Lovely olive-brown patina envelops both sides of this fully struck representative. The highly reflective fields have a few minuscule contact marks, along with scattered flecks. In nearly 15 years of record-keeping, this will be only the 12th offering of this rare issue by Heritage at auction. A wonderful opportunity to acquire a seldom-seen proof half cent. EAC PR60. Population: 2 in 62, 10 finer (7/08).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26ZW, PCGS# 1326)

It goes without saying that after the auction when we had a chance to have dinner together and get to know each other it even made it a better experience for me. I look forward to getting more involved with Heritage in the Future.
