Description

    Original PR63 Red and Brown
    1856 Half Cent, B-1

    1856 1/2 C PR63 Red and Brown PCGS. B-1, R.7 as proof. The raised die lump (as made) on the I in UNITED distinguishes this die variety from Breen-3, the restrike with a doubled T in CENT. The strike is exacting aside from a few obverse dentils at 5 o'clock, and the faded cherry-red and olive surfaces are undisturbed except for two small, subtle spots on the upper left obverse field and a blush of steel-blue toning near star 12. Our EAC grade PR60.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2006), lot 116, which realized $4,025.
    From The Rocky Mountain Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 26ZX, PCGS# 1330)
