Goldberg Auctioneers / January Pre Long Beach Sale (#77) - 26/01/2014 / Missouri Cabinet - Classic Head Half Cents / Lot 116
Classic Head Half Cent 1828 C-3 R1. PCGS MS64 Brilliant original mint red fading to dark steel brown on the highpoints, 80% of the red remaining. There are a few tiny ticks just right of star 6 and a few more microscopic contact marks in the field at the top of the obverse, none notable or at all distracting but enough to keep this piece from gem status. MDS, Manley state 3.0, with a die clashmark at the throat. The reverse is rotated 10 degrees CW and the fields are slightly prooflike on both sides. Sharp strike doubling shows on much of the reverse, a result of die bounce. Our grade is MS64. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are show on the PCGS label. . Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
