Description: 1796 C-1 No Pole R6-. PCGS graded MS-65 Brown. CAC Approved. Choice lustrous bluish steel brown and chocolate with frosty golden light brown toning in protected areas. A wisp of slightly darker olive brown toning shows in the field behind the portrait. The fields are prooflike and the eye appeal of this piece is outstanding. The only defect is a microscopic planchet flake or pinprick in the field before the face close over the bisecting crack. The bisecting die crack is bold with the portion above the crack on a slightly higher plain than the lower half. This die was severely broken. The reverse is a flawless gem. A breath-taking example of this classic rarity and the key to a top-grade "Redbook" collection of half cents. Listed in the Breen condition census on page 160 in his encyclopedia. Our grade is MS63. Weight 82.0 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded in BN (one finer in RB). (PCGS # 35095) .
