1/2 Cent    (sold for $10500.0)

Description: 1857 Breen 1-B (doubled T in CENT) R4. PCGS graded Proof 65 Red & Brown. CAC Approved. Reverse of 1856. Slightly faded mint red mellowing to bluish steel brown, at least 80% of the original color remaining. The fields are nicely reflective with moderate mirrors on both sides. There are some faint hairlines in the fields that keep this piece from a gem rating. The best identifying marks are some specks of steel toning, the largest of these off the lower right point of star 8. None of these spots is significant and the overall eye appeal is excellent, so impressive that Breen selected this piece for his color plate in the back of his encyclopedia. Our grade is Proof-64. Weight 85.0 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; 1 in 66RB. (PCGS # 1333) . Estimated Value $6,500-UP. Ex Abner Kreisberg (Quality Sales Corporation) 11/17/1977-R. Tettenhorst-EPNNES-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 57.2.1). Categories: Missouri Cabinet - Coronet Head Half Cents
