1852 N-3 R-1 PCGS MS 65 RB Braided Hair Large Cent Coin 1c
- Additional information
PCGS authenticated and graded MS 65 RB. Lustrous medium steel brown with flashy bright original mint red showing on about a third of the obverse and nearly half of the reverse. The only notable marks are a very light diagonal nick on the jawline, an area of slightly darker toning between stars 9 & 10, and traces of an old fingerprint on the upper right quadrant of the reverse. None of these marks catches your eye and this cent has excellent eye appeal. M-LDS, die state b late. The base of the 1 is thin but not as thin as in the latest state, and the crack connecting the tops of the C & E in CENT is faintly visible. In addition the reverse is rotated 40 degrees CCW relative to the normal head-to-foot die orientation. Tied for CC#7 in the Grellman census.
