Description & Analysis

Only six proofs of the 1843 half dollar are definitely traced, with the possibility of one or two more extant in long-held collections. A single example is permanently impounded within the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. All pieces were coined with a reverse die displaying a bisecting crack almost vertically from between letters [STAT]ES to letter [HAL]F.
