Description

Choice Proof 1836 Original Half Cent

1836 1/2 C PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Breen 1-A, Low R.6. Original. Both originals and restrikes have the Large Berries reverse. The main differences between the two are the presence of obverse buckling and wide, squared borders on the restrikes. Of great interest as a proof type coin, and one of the few dates available of the Classic Head type. This is a deeply reflective coin that has a noticeable overlay of mint frost on the devices. The surfaces are generally deep red with a significant presence of blue intermixed on each side. The trace of a fingerprint on the face of Liberty that extends into the left obverse field keeps this exceptional coin from the full Gem category. Essentially spot-free; the only mentionable surface mark is a scuff in the reverse field between UNITED and STATES. Population: 4 in 64, 3 finer (3/06). EAC PR60+.(Registry values: P3) (PCGS# 1208)
