1/2 Cent    (sold for $2100.0)

Description: 1842 Proof Original Breen 1-A R6 Proof-20. Glossy chocolate brown with traces of very faded red in protected areas thanks to a very old cleaning. The surfaces are smooth and this piece offers excellent eye appeal. The notable marks are a light scratch from star 8 to the hair below, a pair of tiny diagonal nicks on the nose, and a dull scuff below the N in CENT. Basically just a worn half cent. Breen mentions two circulated examples (more are known today), and this may be the Parmelee piece that suffered a provenance break following the 6/25/1890 sale. Weight 81.8 grains. Davy #42.1.2. Estimated Value $1,500-UP. Ex Thomas L. Elder 10/17/1908:441-Albert F. Holden-Norweb collection, Bowers & Merena 10/12/1987:101.
