Description

Scarce, Low-Mintage 1857 Half Cent, PR64 Brown, B-2

1857 1/2 C PR64 Brown PCGS. B-2, R.4. This variety was produced using what Breen refers to as "Reverse C of 1856," and it is most easily identifiable by doubling on the T in CENT. All proof half cents are rare, and the final-year 1857 is no exception. Attractive and original, the present specimen reveals mottled electric-blue, gold, and orange-apricot colors beneath dominant copper-brown toning. Both sides are sharply struck with no outwardly distracting blemishes. A few wispy contact marks at the top of Liberty's portrait, nevertheless, are mentioned for pedigree purposes. Certified in an old-style green label PCGS holder. EAC PR60. Population: 16 in 64 Brown, 2 finer (11/08). (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 26ZY, PCGS# 1332)
