Lot Description
1831 1/2 C Reverse of 1836 PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. First Restrike. Breen-2, R.6. The obverse has the distinctive small date and large stars that is seen on all three obverses used on 1831 proof half cents. The reverse shows the highest leaf under the left foot of the second S of STATES. This is an early die state that shows no evidence of die cracks on the reverse. Most of each side has deep blue-brown patina with bright, unmellowed red surrounding the obverse devices. Evidence of mint red on the reverse is more elusive. A deeply mirrored proof with no obvious or distracting contact marks or signs of carbon. Population: 3 in 65, 1 finer (12/07). EAC PR63.
