Description

Rare Proof 1857 Half Cent

1857 1/2 C PR63 Brown PCGS. B-2, C-1, R.4. The softly impressed date is diagnostic of this variety, but the balance of the devices exhibit razor sharp definition. This is an originally preserved representative with reddish-brown patina and mottled charcoal colored accents particularly surrounding the devices. Several dozen representatives of this, the final-year proof in the U.S. half cent series, are believed extant. Judging by current NGC and PCGS population data, most of these coins are in lower and mid-grades. EAC 60. Population: 6 in 63, 16 finer (4/06).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 26ZY, PCGS# 1332)
