Description & Analysis

The 1833 half cent is one of the more often seen proofs of that decade. The number of survivors is perhaps two-three dozen in all.

The proofs preceded the currency strikes of this date, as the former lack the prominent die-clash marks associated with most circulating coins. Nevertheless, some of the proofs do reveal a slim die crack within the upper stars.
