1845 Rare Original Strike
1845 1/2 C Original PR64 Brown NGC. CAC. C-1, B-1, High R.6.
This is only the third appearance of an 1845 Original half cent in
any of our sales over the past 20 years. The date shows slight
evidence of repunching, especially below the 5, and the entire date
is left of center in the exergual space. Additional repunching is
evident below the E and T in LIBERTY. The stars are normally
formed. The die is crisp and well formed with no cracks, clash
marks, or other anomalies. The Large Berries reverse die is
similarly well-made without defects. Just over a dozen 1845
Original half cents are known. The obverse exhibits bold details
with deep blue patina intermingled with the olive-brown surfaces.
The left part of the obverse border is bright reddish-orange. The
reverse is essentially olive-brown with delicate blue overtones.
Our EAC grade PR62.

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
