1831 1/2c PCGS Proof 60 BN (Original) ex: Norweb

Rare Proof Half Cent

Elite Items
Eye Appeal:
Degree of Toning: 4/10

An intriguing piece that was described as AU55-prooflike in the Norweb catalog, but later determined to be a proof, as were all 1831 Half Cents. A few light lines are noticeable, most likely the result of a light camel-hair brushing many years ago. Well-struck with lime highlights and pretty iridescent tones.
