1842 Half Cent. Electrotype Copy SOLD
Electrotype copy of the original strike Proof only issue. Large Berries. A close inspection of the edge reveals a discrepancy in color in an even line between the obverse and reverse sides, though the seam for the two “shells” is almost nonexistent. A couple of areas of rub on the high points shows the underlying lead core, but only very faintly. A well done electrotype of this Proof only year.
