    1847 B-3 Second Restrike Half Cent
    PR66 Brown
    , Only Two Finer, Ex: Clarke

    1847 1/2 C Second Restrike PR66 Brown PCGS. CAC. SR-24, B-3, High R.5. Possibly as many as 40 1847 Second Restrike half cents exist today, although few are equal to this beauty. Including both restrike varieties, NGC has certified one PR66 Brown (this coin), one PR66 Red and Brown, and one PR67 Red and Brown. PCGS has certified two in PR66 Brown, rounding out the combined population (7/11).
    This Premium Gem proof is from the T. James Clarke Collection and exhibits "autumn leaves" toning that partially subdues the reflective proof surfaces. A couple of minor specks are evident on the obverse of this otherwise pristine specimen. MRB PR63.
    Ex: T. James Clarke (Abe Kosoff, 4/1956), lot 481, per our consignor.
    From The Oliver Collection.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 26ZH, PCGS# 1293)
