Item#1153 – 1854 N-12 R2+ Repunched 1 AU55
A nicely struck mint state cent that was dipped long ago and has retoned frosty light greenish olive with hints of very faded red and rose in a few of the protected areas. There are no notable marks or other defects, and this example is void of any of the low spots that tend to plague the variety. A cent with great eye appeal in spite of the old dipping. LDS, die state c. The repunching under the 1 is gone and the fields are flowlined.
