The 1836 Original and First Restrike half cents were all coined from the same specific die pair. Distinguishing between the two varieties is solely a function of die state, and the differences are subtle.
Both sides of this green-gold example are fully reflective with noticeable mirrored fields. The presence of a few faint hairlines keep it from a higher grade.
Ex: Auction '87 (Stack's, 8/1987), lot 507.
