Description:
1831 B-2 First Restrike Half Cent, PR65 Brown
1831 1/2 C Reverse of 1836 PR65 Brown NGC. B-2, R.5. Breen State I. EAC PR63. The obverse is noticeably bulged at the center, yet this is an early state before the reverse die cracked.
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.
