    Outstanding PR66 ★ 1841 Half Cent
    Original Dies, Large Berries, B-1

    1841 1/2 C Original PR66 ★ Brown NGC. Large Berries. B-1, R.5. Breen State III with a slender obverse die crack between 9 and 12 o'clock. As of (3/10), this is the single highest NGC-graded 1841 Large Berries half cent. This fully struck Premium Gem displays dazzling field reflectivity. Inspection beneath a lens fails to locate even the most trivial hairlines or carbon spots. Designated as Brown, but when the piece is rotated beneath a light, brick-red iridescence dominates the reverse and outlines the obverse legends and stars. The open fields and Liberty's face and neck exhibit consistent gunmetal-blue toning. A remarkable specimen of this early date, one that would be the centerpiece of nearly any collection of proof half cents. MRB PR63.(Registry values: P2)
