1832 C-2 R7 (as a proof). PCGS graded Proof 66+ Red & Brown. CAC Approved. Mint red mellowing to blue steel, 90% of the red remaining on the obverse, 35% on the reverse. The fields are very attractive with moderate to deep mirrors on both sides. The best identifying marks, and they are trivial, are a small spot of steel toning left of star 10, a speck over the 2, and traces of carbon dust at the dentils over star 5. Outstanding eye appeal. The obverse and reverse are illustrated in the color plates at the back of the Breen encyclopedia. A fabulous half cent. Our grade is Proof-65. Weight 83.6 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only one graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35298) .
Estimated Value $25,000-UP.
