    MS62 1836 Script 8 Two and a Half
    Head of 1835, Variety 11

    1836 $2 1/2 Script 8 MS62 NGC. Head of 1835, Breen-6143, Variety 11, R.2.
    No berry on olive branch, star 6 close to hair curl. The Head of 1835 is practically always seen with a bold die break through star 6 and the top of the headband. Here (and often), the break extends through the entire portrait and exits to the rim between stars 12 and 13. The antique-gold surfaces have a greenish tinge, and a patch of rose color appears on the reverse. A small verdigris spot at star 5 provides an undistracting pedigree marker. An estimable example for type collectors. Census: 28 in 62, 22 finer (12/10).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25FU, PCGS# 7694)
