1832 Half Cent - What's wrong with this one?


Recommended Posts

Not sure, but I really like it. I would love to get one. I dont have one of them. Is it for sale?

Just my humble opin, at some point in the last 50 years this piece was rather harshly cleaned and retoned. Which is troubling, because without the clean and retone it would be a really nice piece. The portrait is most indicative of an area cleaned and not quite retoned yet.
