1833 Classic Half Cent. C-1, B-1, the only known dies. Rarity-1. MS-64 RB (PCGS). This is an enchanting near-Gem with lovely surfaces that are devoid of distractions apart from a few swirls of variegated color on the reverse. Otherwise both sides exhibit dominant fire-red luster with fairly minimal toning in a mostly gray-brown hue. Satiny and bright, with a sharp strike extending from rim-to-rim. Perfect for high-grade type purposes!
