Lot 432
1847 Second Restrike Breen 1-C R6- NGC graded Proof-62 Brown. Reverse of 1840. Golden tan and light olive with a splash of reddish steel toning at star 12 and hints of iridescence on both sides. There are faint hairlines in the fields on both sides and traces of carbon around star 12 and under the triangle of the 4. Probably lightly cleaned or brushed long ago but the fields on both sides are reflective. Our grade is Proof-60. This half cent was part of the famous Missouri Cabinet Collection that we sold in our 1/26/2014 sale, but it was inadvertently left behind in possession of Mr. Tettenhorst. And it comes with a nice provenance. Weight 86.4 grains. Pop 1; 15 finer at NGC. Estimate Value $2,250 - UP

Lot 433
1852 First Restrike Proof Breen 1-B R5 PCGS graded PR66 Brown, CAC Approved. Reverse of 1856. Beautiful golden light brown with delicate overtones of bluish steel in protected areas. The fields are highly reflective with deep mirrors on both sides and this piece has outstanding eye appeal. The only notable marks are two tiny struck-through lines in the field right of star 6 and another under star 8, as minted. A knife edge shows on the left half of the obverse. This piece was struck twice, and the second impression was rotated 30 degrees CCW on the obverse (CW on the reverse, of course). The undertype bust and neck show very faintly in the field left of the bust and neck of the second impression (clearest off the bust tip), UNI shows more clearly under the wreath ribbon, and the C from CENT is clearly visible under the CE in CENT of the second strike. Additional very faint traces of undertype are visible on both sides. Stars 9-11 are flatly struck as a result of the rotated second impression but everything else is nicely struck up. An outstanding mint error; extremely rare on a proof strike. Our grade is Proof-64, close to gem. Weight 78.4 grains. Comes with a great provenance. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. Pop 3; tied for the finest examples graded at both services. Estimate Value $9,000 - UP

Lot 434
1855 C-1 R1 NGC graded MS64 Brown. Lustrous medium steel brown with attractive overtones of light bluish steel in protected areas and a few peeps of faded mint color on the reverse. The surfaces are satiny and the eye appeal is excellent. No spots or stains. The only marks are some microscopic ticks on the face and in the field off the chin, and you need a good glass to see them. MDS. Many of the dentils are not fully struck up, as normal for this date. Our grade is MS62. A nice piece for a type set. The attribution is noted on the NGC label. Estimate Value $375 - UP
