Description & Analysis

The Restrike Small Date half cents of 1849 are slightly more rare than the Originals, but their brighter polishing of the dies has made them more available in gem condition.

Walter Breen noted in his 1983 half cent book that the Mint made its own planchets for proof half cents, while buying those for currency pieces ready made from Crocker & Bros. in Taunton, MA.
