    1836 B-2 Half Cent, PR65 Red and Brown
    Extremely Rare Second Restrike

    1836 Second Restrike, B-2, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. Our EAC grade PR64. 77.6 grains. Breen Die State I. The Classic Head proofs with the Reverse of 1840, the Second Restrikes, are only known for 1831 and 1836, and surviving examples are extremely rare. At the same time, some will argue that these are a distinctive type for design collectors. There are many numismatists who would not hesitate to designate this piece as Red rather than Red and Brown. In fact, this is the reddest example we have ever seen. This is a reasonable candidate for resubmission. The strike weakness on the reverse from EN of CENT, to LF of HALF, and to the leaves below OF AM is a result of the obverse die buckling; that design deficit is found on some extent on each of the few surviving 1836 Second Restrike half cents. Census: 1 in PR65 Red and Brown, 0 finer (3/21).
