    1837 Classic Two and a Half, MS61, Variety-16

    1837 $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Breen-6145, Variety-16, R.2. This variety has three pale gules in the reverse shield. This is a reuse of Reverse A from 1834. AME and RI are joined on the reverse as further identifiers of this variety. Variety-16 coins are common for an 1837. As a result, this Uncirculated example would make an excellent better-date type coin or a Mint State example for a set of Classic two and a halves. The fields are bright and semireflective with a uniform, deep reddish patina. The striking details are above average, especially on the hair curls of Liberty. Minimally abraded. Census: 15 in 61, 22 finer (5/11).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25FX, PCGS# 7695)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 89.92% Gold, 10.08% Copper
