Ron Guth: Breen (1989) listed Proof examples of two different 1831 Half Dime varieties: LM-3 and LM-5.

Logan and McCloskey (1998) list no Proof citations under any of the individual die variety write-ups and discount trhe Eliasberg:921 Proof as a business strike.

PCGS has not certified any Proofs of this date.  The 1832 Half Dime is either extremely rare as a Proof or may not even exist as a true Proof.
