Description

Scarce 1856 Half Cent, PR 64 Brown NGC

1856 1/2 C PR 64 Brown NGC. B-3, R.4. The Philadelphia Mint produced approximately 200 proof half cents in 1856. Perhaps as many as 60 of the survivors are of the present die variety, which is identifiable by doubling on the T in CENT on the reverse. Iridescent orange, gold, blue, and lilac undertones are evident at certain angles, the outward appearance is one of mahogany-brown patina. This is a fully struck coin with smooth, nearly Gem quality surfaces.
From the Alex Highland Collection. (NGC ID# 26ZX, PCGS# 1329)
