Greysheet Catalog Details (GSID: 213458)

The 1832 Half Cent is part of a series of Classic Head coins struck from 1809-1836. The specific variety is C-2. Struck in Philadelphia and designated as a Proof (PR) strike, this coin is made of Copper.

The 1832 Proof Half Cent is one of the most rare of the Classic Head design, especially in gem condition, with single digit examples known and graded as such.

Nevertheless, the original mintage is somewhat average for the series with 30 pieces struck. Overall this coin is virtually unattainable and consequently quite intriguing to collectors of expensive earlier proof copper. Collectors of toned coins may also like this issue since it seems to present premium coloring when found with the brown color designation. Bright red examples do exist as well, if that is what interests you.


Obverse: Lady Liberty is portrayed with a capped bonnet, facing left, in what is referred to as the so-called classic head style. The word LIBERTY appearing on her headband. 13 stars appear left and right in a 7x6 formation.
Reverse: The words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the periphery surround a wreath framing the words HALF CENT. The wreath is tied by a bow at the bottom.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
