Description & Analysis

The large mintage of half cents in 1851 precluded the need for additional pieces. Half cent dies were made for an 1852 coinage that never materialized, and for that reason some numismatists have speculated that proofs must have been made that year. Others dispute the existence of Originals, though NGC has certified a single example. Originals are presumed to have used the Small Berries reverse die, but that fact may never be proved.

A date logotype for half eagles was used for this date, resulting in figures that were too large for the available space and thus touched the bust device.
