    1842 B-1 Half Cent Original, PR64 Brown

    1842 1/2 C Original PR64 Brown PCGS. B-1, R.6. The Original variety with large berries in the wreath, likely struck in the year displayed. This example exhibits pleasing chocolate-brown surfaces with traces of blue and tan toning. The fields are mostly mirrored, although subdued at the upper reverse where some green residue is noted. Careful conservation might successfully remove that matter. A single diagonal scrape runs downward from just below the N in CENT to near the leaves below. PCGS reports two in PR64 Brown with one each in PR65, PR65+, and PR66 Brown finer (12/14). Our EAC grade PR55.(Registry values: P5)
