1828 C-3, B-2 Half Cent, MS64 Red
1828 1/2 C 13 Stars, C-3, B-2, R.1, MS64 Red PCGS. CAC. Ex:
Missouri Cabinet Collection. Manley Die State 2.0 lacking clash
marks but retaining the recutting of Star 7. Essentially full fiery
red with a few insignificant dark toning splashes. Full mirrored
fields on the obverse and satin luster on the reverse suggested to
past owners that this was a proof strike. While not considered a
proof today, this piece ranks as one of the finest known examples.
