Choice $5850 New May 17! Gorgeous Bright Light Eye Appeal, Lightly Mirrored Obverse, Near-Gem Original, Newtown Collection. This 1846 Medium Date WB-1 half warrants a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as the bright light eye appeal is simply outstanding. This is a dual sided finish Newtown release with the obverse being lightly mirrored while the reverse is steely-frosted. Under a bright light, the darker olive gold-gray obverse toning melts away to reveal center pastel rose surrounded by a gorgeous peripheral yellow-gold ring. The eye appeal is compelling here. The reverse offers the similar center rose framed by aquamarine at the rims. The overall strike is complete other than a touch of weakness at the left facing claw. This lot showcases the WB-1 die pairing with boldly cracked reverse at (STA)TES and is way better in-hand than on the images. Please trust me here. Ideal as a No Motto type coin. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder with CAC approval.
