Description

    1836 B-1 Original Half Cent, PR62 Brown

    1836 1/2 C PR62 Brown NGC. B-1, R.5. EAC PR60. Although NGC certified as a Restrike, we feel that this piece is one of the more plentiful Original 1836 half cents. We are unable to detect any evidence of obverse buckling, or of die repolishing.
    The 1836 Original and First Restrike half cents were all coined from the same specific die pair. Distinguishing between the two varieties is solely a function of die state, and the differences are subtle.
    Both sides of this green-gold example are fully reflective with noticeable mirrored fields. The presence of a few faint hairlines keep it from a higher grade.
    Ex: Auction '87 (Stack's, 8/1987), lot 507.
    From The Colonel Steven Ellsworth Collection of U.S. Half Cents.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 223C, PCGS# 1207)
