    Important 1849 Restrike Half Cent, A Fully Lustrous Proof

    1849 1/2 C Restrike PR63 Red PCGS. B-2, Low R.6. This fully lustrous example displays a pinkish-red sheen that is original, if somewhat subdued. This is a fully defined example whose surfaces are kept from an even higher grade by a few scattered handling marks and carbon flecks. The overall eye appeal would, nonetheless, do justice to a Choice designation. The double impression on the T in CENT is the most readily evident diagnostic of B-2, a variety that Breen (1983) calls a "first restrike."
    Ex: 85th Annual ANA Convention Sale (Stack's, 8/76), lot 203. (NGC ID# 26ZM, PCGS# 1307)

    Weight: 5.44 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
