Half Cents
Item - 9815
H.01 1807 PCGS MS63BN
$ 18500.00
We can not stress enough how rare this coin is and how much quality oriented it is. Its the second nicest 1807 we have EVER seen!

Superior surfaces have no pitting, cuts, or problems visible. In fact, there are no spots either. A little gloss can be seen as well as a surprisingly strong luster. We do believe the surfaces are totally ORIGINAL. Both sides are a pretty light chocolate brown color. Miss Liberty and the details are extremely sharp in strike. Even the EAC guys would agree this coin is a real MS piece! The eye appeal is really terrific!

PCGS 3, NGC 2, CAC 2. NONE have ever sold in auction. A PCGS MS62BN CAC sold for $8,913.00 in the Missouri Cabinet while a MS64+ BN CAC brought $71,874.00. We promise, your not going to find many choice 1807 H.01 ever offered for sale!

The extreme great rarity and quality of this coin can NOT be overstated. It is as rare as even an 1894S 10C, and it has VERY high end quality! In your lifetime you will see no more then a handful of ORIGINAL PROOFS offered of any date or grade.

What a marvelous and totally ORIGINAL GEM this coin is. Shallow but real mirrors are clear, clean, and do have some strong reflectivity. The color is a totally ORIGINAL mix of faded mint red and light brown. Miss Liberty and the details are needle sharp in strike and have light frost. Here is a partial description from Goldberg: "Mint red fading to steel brown, about half of the red remaining. The fields are nicely reflective with moderate mirrors on the obverse and slightly deeper ones on the reverse. A gem except for a few carbon spots, including one in the field left of the date and another in the field below star 10 near the hair bun." We'd like to add, the eye appeal is wonderful!

ONL:Y 15 pieces were ever minted. PCGS 1, NGC 0, CAC 1. The only other piece graded 65-is the other PR65+ from the Missouri cabinet. That coin sold for $94,875.00. If that coin had not been first, we would not have been able to buy this. There was a new collector who no question was determined to buy a complete PR set from the sale. Most likely this will be the ONLY ORIGINAL PR 1848 for sale for years. NO PR65's have ever sold in auction. The last PR 64RB that sold was back in 2003-that coin brought $10,350.00 heritage. We can't stress enough how much we feel these are UNDERvalued -still!

Legend Numismatics is proud to own and offer this extreme rarity to our collecting friends.

This coin in our opinion is a SUPER HIGH END! We also think its one of the neatest PR Half Cents from the sale.

Surprisingly shimmering and deep, crystal clear, clean, and highly reflective mirrors beam from all over. We looked hard for any real imperfections-and found NONE! This is NOT your typical shallow barely mirrors Half Cent Proof. The colors are totally ORIGINAL and include chocolate brown/faded blue/gold that swirl all over. Miss Liberty and the details are needle sharp in strike and have light frost. The eye appeal is spectacular! here is a partial description from Goldberg: "Light brown with iridescent rose and blue steel overtones plus faded mint red in protected areas of the reverse. The fields are nicely reflective with moderately deep mirrors on both sides. Kept from gem status by a tiny spot of planchet impurity struck into the field left of star 11 and a microscopic chip on the coronet over the I in LIBERTY. As a point of interest, the 8 in the date on all the Small Date Proofs is weaker than the other three digits. The weakness appears to have been caused by a clog in the die that went uncorrected during its use on both the Originals and First Restrikes." Interesting how the copper weenie describe coins!

ONLY 12 coins were ever minted. That's as rare as ANY major classic rarity! PCGS 2, NGC 1, CAC 2. The other PCGS CAC piece was also in the auction and it brought $48,300.00. Until now, NO 1849's have sold at auction (while you have had 5 1913 5C, a few 1804 $1, and several 1838O halves sell in the past 3 years)! We KNOW this coin is grossly UNDERvalued. You can't put a price on coins that simply never trade. We think ANY PR 65 or better ORIGINAL should be $100,000.00. Opportunity knocks loud here!
