    1806 Half Cent, MS64+ Red
    C-4, Stems, Large 6
    Ideal Draped Bust Type Coin

    1806 1/2 C Large 6, Stems, C-4, B-4, R.1, MS64+ Red PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Manley Die State 1.0, but with unlisted clash marks below Liberty's chin and above the F in HALF. Cohen-4 is the sole Large 6 variety. The 6 punch was likely intended for use on half dollars, and was repunched to create an even larger appearance. This near-Gem is essentially devoid of contact, and the lustrous surfaces are primarily orange-gold. One unobtrusive spot is west of the hair ribbon. Single finest C-4 at both CAC and PCGS. The latter lists three as MS64 Brown, six as MS64 Red and Brown, and four as MS63 Red, all surpassed solely by the present lot (9/20). CAC shows nine as MS63 Brown, seven as MS64 Red and Brown, and three as MS63 Red, with only this example finer (9/20).
