Lot Description
1842 1/2 C Restrike PR65 Red and Brown NGC. B-2, Low R.7. Series III. A desirable proof-only issue. The doubled T in CENT characterizes this variety, which Breen (1983) described as a First Restrike. Although we cannot weigh this coin because of the PCGS slab, the tiny die lump (as produced) at the outside point of star 4 identifies this coin as a Series III striking. Razor-sharp, as expected from a proof restrike. The surfaces are flashy and essentially immaculate, since the few tiny lintmarks are as made. Beautifully toned in blended powder-blue and plum colors.
