PR64 Red and Brown 1857 Coronet Half Cent, PCGS-Certified1857 1/2 C PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. B-2, R.4. This final-year proof Half Cent is easily attributed by doubling on the T in CENT. There is some faded mint luster over the lower obverse, otherwise the surfaces are medium brown in sheen with olive-gray peripheral accents on the reverse. Direct angles reveal considerably more pink-red luster as undertones. Although B-2 is the more common of the two known die marriage of the proof 1857 Half Cent, it is still a rare coin with just several dozen believed extant (per Breen, 1983). (NGC ID# 26ZY, PCGS# 1333)
