Item#1126 – 1854 N-19 R3 PCGS graded AU50
Rare Early State N-19
Glossy chocolate and olive brown. The surfaces are smooth except for a dusting of microscopic verdigris under the earlobe, but it takes a good glass to see it. The only notable mark is a small rim bruise at TA in STATES. Extremely rare EDS, die state a, with the obverse die uncracked. Our grade is VF30, second finest of only 10 known with the uncracked obverse in the Grellman census. The attribution is noted on the PCGS label.
