The 1831 First Restrike half cents share a common reverse die with the 1836 First Restrike half cents. As the 1831 reverse is known in three distinct die states that include prominent die cracks in the later states, it is conclusive that these pieces were struck after the 1836 coins that are only known from a perfect reverse die state.
Reflective dark chocolate surfaces exhibit iridescent toning on both sides, with hints of faded red on the reverse. The mirrored fields are deeper on the obverse, typical of these restrikes.
Ex: Superior (2/2003), lot 122.
