1833 Classic Half Cent. C-1, B-1, the only known dies. Rarity-1. Manley Die State 1.0. MS-65 BN (NGC). A sharp early die state, this piece is also fully prooflike in finish with considerable "flash" in the fields. Bold medium-copper patina dominates the outward appearance, and it is free of all but a few trivial blemishes that generally take the form of very faint toning spots. An impressive-looking piece.
