Very Rare 1848 Original Half Cent--The Finest Certified

1848 Original PR 65 Red and Brown NGC. Large Berries. A Low R.7 proof as an original, Breen estimates that at least 14 pieces are extant today in all grades, making this one of the rarest and most desirable of all proof half cents. The 1848 is so rare that it has even been copied with several electrotypes known. Both services combined have certified only four Red and Brown coins, this specimen being the finest and only Proof 65. With the diagnostic recut sixth star, the very reflective fields are overlaid with a deep-blue patina with perhaps 20% of the original mint red remaining. (PCGS# 1297)
