Description

C-1, B-1 1857 Half Cent, MS65 Red
Last Year of Denomination

1857 1/2 C MS65 Red PCGS. C-1, B-1, R.2. The sole dies. The pumpkin-gold color is remarkably consistent for a copper coin past its sesquicentennial. Only a hint of mellowing is present, mostly on the central reverse field. The strike is crisp, carbon is minor, and careful rotation yields only trivial surface grazes. Condition Census quality. A low mintage date, since the denomination ceased production relatively early in 1857. Both the half cent and large cent were replaced by the small cent, since the large diameter copper coins cost more than their face value to produce. MRB MS64. Population: 2 in 65 Red, 0 finer (7/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26Z3, PCGS# 1241)
