Item#1123 – 1854 N-18 R2+ NGC graded MS65 Red & Brown
Highly lustrous bluish steel and light olive with mellowed mint red covering 10-15% of the planchet. The eye appeal of this cent is outstanding. Nicely struck with just a few trivial marks including a faint horizontal scuff off the tip of the nose, a spot of slightly lighter brown toning at the left point of star 12, and a tiny planchet chip on the rim at star 3. LDS, die state c. The earlier die lines at the E in ONE are gone and the die clashmarks are dull. Our grade is MS64+, finest known in the Grellman census. NGC population 1, none finer in RB.
