    1834 Half Cent, MS65 Red and Brown
    High Grade Type Coin, C-1, B-1

    1834 1/2 C C-1, B-1, R.1, MS65 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Manley Die State 3.0. Cohen-1 is the sole die marriage for this popular Classic Head date. Most 1834 half cents are brown, but the present coin is one of three coins certified by PCGS as MS65 Red and Brown, with only a single MS66 Red and Brown example and one MS65 Red example graded finer (11/20). Crisply struck and free from contact, though field clash marks are prominent on both sides, as is characteristic of scarce late die-state examples. Orange-gold color frequently emerges from the predominantly lilac-red surfaces. The grade is limited solely by a few freckles of cobalt-blue toning, near the bust truncation and the N in CENT. Our EAC grade MS64.
