    B-1 Original

    1840 1/2 C Original PR61 Red and Brown PCGS. B-1, R.5. Large berries in the reverse wreath identify the Original die pair. This Red and Brown proof displays satiny surfaces with deep amber-red patina. A few scattered flecks are not bothersome. There are few contact marks. Considerable strike softness occurs around portions of the borders, most notably on the lower-obverse and upper-reverse rims and the top of the wreath. The mint luster is satiny rather than deeply reflective. Our EAC grade PR45.(Registry values: P4)
