*ON HOLD* Absolutely superb for the grade. Fully struck, with mark free fields and full luster. Even chocolate brown tone overall with an arc of light patina at the right obverse periphery. Exceptional in every way.
*NEW* Absolutely gorgeous half cent that looks more like a MS66 than a MS64. Perfect full strike with glowing luster on even chocolate brown surfaces and lovely blue highlights. A couple undetectable tiny hairlines on the face, I assume, have accounted for the grade, but this coin is truly a STUNNER.
*NEW* As pleasing as this grade can be, starting with a firm, even strike that resulted in complete design detailing front and back. Surfaces are distraction free and the color is a nice, even chocolate brown with slightly deeper patina in the recesses, resulting in strong eye-appeal.
*NEW* Well impressed and even striking of both sides starts off this exceptional early Large Cent. Surfaces are virtually free of any marks or distractions and the color is an even chocolate brown.
