Lot Description
1806 1/2 C Large 6, Stems MS63 Red and Brown PCGS. C-4, B-4, R.1. Manley Die State 1.0. Distinguished by a large, repunched 6 with the peak affixed to the base of Liberty's bust. Much faded golden-tan color adheres to the devices. The strike is generally well executed, although the TES in STATES and a few leaves on the wreath are typically lacking in detail. Most Uncirculated representatives of this variety trace back to the small hoard of 1806 B-4 half cents that the Chapman brothers dispersed in 1906. MRB MS62. Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 522; Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 56, which realized $4,887.50.
