    1857 Nine-Piece Proof Set
    Half Cent Through Dollar
    All NGC-Certified, PR64 to PR66

    1857 1/2 C Nine-Piece Proof Set NGC. This is a pleasing set that is well-matched. Included are:

    Half Cent PR65 Brown NGC. B. 1-B, R.4 as a proof. Identifiable as to variety by doubling seen on the T in CENT. The surfaces have toned deep blue-brown over each side, yet the mirroring in the fields is still evident and brightly shines through the patina. This Gem is fully struck, as expected, with wide, squared-off rims.
    From The Douglas Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 26ZY, PCGS# 1332)

    Weight: 5.44 grams
