Goldberg Auctioneers / January Pre Long Beach Sale (#77) - 26/01/2014 / Missouri Cabinet - Coronet Head Half Cents / Lot 216
Coronet Head Half Cent 1855 C-1 Breen 1-A R5. PCGS PF65 Mellowed mint red fading to light bluish steel brown, 80% of the red remaining on the obverse 30% on the reverse. The fields are nicely reflective with moderate to deep mirrors on both sides. The reflectivity of the obverse fields is hindered a bit by many tiny lint marks (from polishing cloth lint stuck to the die). The lint marks are most noticeable from the lips to over star 2 and up from the top of the inner hair bun. In addition, there is a spot of steel toning in the field off the bust tip, another on the neck near the upper curl, and a carbon spot right of the date. Our grade is Proof-64. Weight 81.6 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. . Estimated Value $7,500-UP.
