Description

1857 Braided Hair Half Cent PR64 Brown NGC. C-1, B-2, R.4. The year 1857 saw the last issue of the old copper cents and half cents. Proof sets produced in the early part of the year include those denominations, while later sets include the small cent. The present coin features a needle-sharp strike, with delicate reddish-brown patina over both sides. The issue is seldom encountered in all grades and quite rare in PR64 Brown. The variety is easily diagnosed by the doubling of ENT in CENT. Census: 12 in 64 Brown, 6 finer (3/10).
From The Boca Collection, Part II.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 26ZY, PCGS# 1332)
