Description:
Choice Proof 1833 Half Cent
1833 1/2 C PR64 Brown PCGS. B-1, C-1, the only known dies, R.5 as proof. All 1833 Classic Half Cents were struck from a single set of dies. Breen (1983) suggests that the proofs may have been struck to commemorate the opening of the new Philadelphia Mint in January 1833. Perhaps 50 specimens are believed extant, among which is this deeply toned example. Blue-green shades intermingle with chocolate-brown, antique-gold, crimson, and cobalt-blue accents as the coin rotates under a light. The obverse reveals a lighter brown area between star 4 and Liberty's nose, one of the primary identifiers of this rare coin. Aesthetically pleasing brightness in the fields shows under the toning as the coin is turned. Uncommonly sharp striking definition further confirms this coin's status as a proof. Population: 4 in 64, none are finer (10/05).(#1198) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2239, PCGS# 1198)
