    Late State 1841 B-1 Original Half Cent, PR62 Brown

    1841 1/2 C Original PR62 Brown NGC. B-1, R.5. Breen State III. EAC PR60. The obverse has a prominent die crack from the border near star 2, passing through stars 3, 4, 5, 6, and back to the border over star 7.
    The obverse die cracked as the Original proofs were struck. All examples of the First and Second Restrikes have the crack in an advanced state. A critical comparison of the obverse dies of Original and Restrike 1841 half cents should be conducted. The crack on certain late die state examples of the Original proofs seems to be heavier than on certain Restrikes.
    Mahogany-brown surfaces are moderately reflective with a few minor spots on each side.
    Ex: Superior (9/1999), lot 368.
