Lovely 1809 C-3, B-4 Half Cent, MS62 Brown1809 1/2 C MS62 Brown NGC. C-3, B-4, R.1. Breen State III. Manley State 2.0. EAC 55. Both sides have die cracks that are weakened by flowlines. There appears to be a rim break over the left side of the first A in AMERICA, possibly representing Breen's Die State IV, that he called "very rare." The reverse is rotated about 30 degrees counterclockwise.
The 1809 C-3 and C-6 die marriages are approximately tied for the most plentiful of the year in Mint State grades. Manley calls C-3 "the most available 1809 variety in Mint State."
A splendid representative with sharp design features and frosty olive-brown surfaces highlighted by traces of tan, faded from original red.
Ex: Coleman Foster (8/1999).
