Description:
Choice Proof 1836 Original Half Cent
1836 1/2 C PR64 Brown PCGS. B-1 Original, Large Berries, Low R.6. Only proof half cents were struck in 1836, and restrikes of this issue were produced in later years. The same pair of dies were used for both Original and First Restrike half cents of this date, and the differences are minute. In his Half Cent Encyclopedia, Walter Breen stated: "These are often confused with the First Restrikes below [in his reference]; the quickest way to tell them apart is that on the Originals, the borders are in every way similar to those on proofs of 1832-35, whereas on the Restrikes the obverse die shows buckling and the borders are much more pronounced, 'squared,' with knife rims."
Due to the PCGS holder, it is not possible to determine if the borders are squared or not, and it is also difficult to detect any obverse die buckling. This piece has every appearance of being an unbuckled Original. The surfaces of this Choice proof are sufficiently mirrored with bright olive and golden-brown color. Each side has a few dark spots, with those by the date serving as convenient pedigree markers. EAC PR60.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 223B, PCGS# 1207)
