    1835 Half Cent, MS66 Brown
    C-1, Second Finest at PCGS

    1835 1/2 C C-1, B-1, R.1, MS66 Brown PCGS. Manley Die State 2.0. The C in CENT is repunched, one method of distinguishing C-1 from C-2. PCGS has certified many 1835 half cents, but only two examples at the MS66 level: the present lot, and another piece as MS66 Red and Brown. This lustrous and precisely struck Premium Gem exhibits ample orange-gold color, though it is just shy of securing a Red and Brown designation. The remainder of the coin is gunmetal-blue. Pristine save for a subtle fingerprint on the field near the nose. Our EAC grade MS63.
