Description & Analysis

All 1849 half cents coined for circulation have the large date illustrated, though these dies were likewise used for proofs. Among the low-mintage half cents of 1849-57, this date vies with 1850 for the scarcest of these, though it is not truly rare except in red or red-brown Mint State.
