1832 Half Cent, MS66 Brown
1832 1/2 C C-1, B-1, R.2, MS66 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson.
Uncommonly unabraded surfaces are the hallmark of this magnificent
Premium Gem. The obverse is mostly mahogany-brown with hints of
steel-gray on the cheek and other high points. The reverse is
rose-red with blues of gunmetal-blue. The strike is intricate with
the exception of the N in CENT. Carbon is confined to a minuscule
fleck northwest of star 11. As of (9/20), PCGS has yet to certify
any 1832 cents as Red. 15 pieces have been certified as Red and
Brown by PCGS, none above the MS65 level. PCGS has graded two
Cohen-1 coins and one Cohen-3 example as MS66 Brown, with no others
at or above that grade (9/20). At the MS66 level, CAC lists three
coins as MS66 Brown with none finer (9/20).
