Gorgeous, dark chocolate brown surfaces retain sharp detail and satiny luster with pretty steely blue and golden tan undertones throughout.
Lovely midgrade example of this scare early issue. Even, deep chocolate coloration spans the boldly struck, delightfully smooth surfaces.
The fact that a coin this old has retained such a deep cherry-red color is a testament to either the care with which it was kept, or the perhaps the sheer luck that it remained undisturbed in a dry, non-humid environment. Do not miss the chance to own this astonishing Classic Head Half Cent!
