Item#1105 – 1854 N-11 R2 PCGS graded MS64 Brown, CAC Approved
Lustrous tan and light brown with overtones of golden light olive on the reverse. No spots, stains, or contact marks. The only notable defect is a thin planchet flake on the rim under the end of the wreath ribbon (as struck). M-LDS, die state c. The fields are covered with fine die flowlines and flowlines connect the left end of the base of the 1 and right end of the base of the 4 to the dentils below. The hair at the top of the ear is not fully struck (as usual on most of this variety); otherwise this cent is choice. Our grade is MS60+.
