1839  N-14  R3  PCGS MS63 BN              $2750

Frosty medium brown and chocolate with traces of mint red remaining on the reverse. The fields are satiny and the eye appeal of this cent is excellent for the grade. The notable marks are a few tiny ticks on the rim over star 9 and a faint lamination in the dentils at star 12. LDS. The rims are slightly dished and the fields and covered with fine die flowlines while several of the stars have their points drawn to the rim. Much of the peripheral detail has been weakened by flowlines and die wear but the central details are sharp. The reverse is cracked, as always, through the tops of STATES OF A. Called MS60 and tied for CC#5 in the Noyes census, his photo #27016. Removed from an NGC slab graded MS65BN (NGC label included, and it shows the attribution and Reiver provenance).

Ex George Ramont-Jules Reiver, Heritage 1/24/06:20138.
