    1841 Half Cent, PR64 Red
    B-1, Original, Large Berries

    1841 1/2 C Original PR64 Red NGC. B-1, R.5. Breen Die State III, with a lengthy slender crack that connects stars 3 to 6 and approaches stars 2 and 7. The large berries differentiate the Original proofs from the First and Second Restrikes. As is the case with most dates from the 1840s, no business strikes were issued. A well struck and radiant rose-red and yellow-gold near-Gem. The grade is determined by a small spot within the hair above the RT in LIBERTY, and a few nearly imperceptible hairlines on the upper obverse field. Minute gray flecks are scattered. Our EAC grade PR64. Census: 2 in 64 Red, 0 finer (5/14).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26Z6, PCGS# 1256)
