    Gem PR65 1841 Original Half Cent

    1841 1/2 C Original PR65 Brown NGC. B-1, R.6. Die State III. The obverse die crack is quite faint yet fully visible. This same obverse die was also used to produced the restrike half cents; however, on those later pieces the die crack is much more prevalent. The proof-only years of United States half cents exist in several different series, including originals, first restrikes, and second restrikes. While the Original issues were, in fact, struck at the time of their dates, the restrikes were produced much later. We can learn much about early United States proof coins by studying these Original issues. Note in particular the depth of mirrored surface in the fields, and that this mirrored surfaces meets crisply with the edges of the various design elements. Also, note that the strike is extremely sharp. All of this is important, as it tells us exactly what to look for when authenticating any early U.S. coin as a proof strike. This particular specimen, in addition to the surfaces discussed above, has delicate green and iridescent toning with exceptional eye appeal.(#1254) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26Z6, PCGS# 1254)
