|Variety||Low-49, Rulau HT-73|
1837 Half Cent Token Low-49, Rulau HT-73. PCGS graded MS-66 Brown. CAC. Glossy chocolate brown. The only mark is a very tiny rim nick at the N in STANDARD. Otherwise this piece is choice. Sharply struck EDS with slightly prooflike fields, especially on the obverse. Excellent eye appeal. Certainly one of the finest of a variety that often comes in grades close to uncirculated but is seldom seen meeting a true mint state standard. It's the best we have seen. Our grade is MS63. These are frequently collected with the regular Federal Half Cent series since no half cents were issued in 1837. Listed on page 95 in the "Redbook." Weight 81.0 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded. (PCGS # 517429) Estimate Value $1,250 - UP Ex B. Max Mehl 89th Sale 6/23/1936-unknown-James R. McGuigan 7/25/1984-R. Tettenhorst-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 37.1.3).
