NGC does not use Breen numbers for the proof half cents. It was determined many years ago that his varieties represent die states that are not of general interest to collectors.

Perhaps that is true for some years.  1857 proof half cent Breen varieties B-1 and B-2, however, are due to 2 separate  and unmistakable dies, and have nothing to do with die states.   But if NGC doesn't attribute them, well, so be it.
