Final-Year 1857 Half Cent Rarity, MS64 Red1857 1/2 C MS64 Red NGC. C-1, B-1, R.2. The final-year 1857 has a reputation as scarce to rare in all grades, with fully lustrous Mint State survivors definitely falling into the latter category. Warmly frosted in texture, the surfaces are richly endowed in cherry-red luster. The strike is razor sharp over the central features, and even the peripheral devices are uncommonly well impressed for the type. A minor spot near star 1 and a slight mellowing of color on the central reverse are all that seem to bar this important near-Gem from an even higher grade. MRB MS64. Census: 6 in 64 Red, 2 finer (3/10).
