1831 Restrike 1/2c PCGS/CAC Proof 66 BN (Reverse of 1836)

DLRC #: 1552926 // PCGS #: 1189

Pretty copper-gray surfaces with lilac-blue highlights. A rare and desirable proof-only variety with an estimated 30 pieces surviving. No records of when these restrikes were made have been unearthed, thus the issue is shrouded in a bit of mystery. CAC approved for quality.
