1856 N-7 R2 PCGS MS65                   $1650 

Lustrous mint red fading to light bluish steel brown and chocolate with 25% of the red remaining, mostly on the reverse. The fields are satiny and the eye appeal of this cent is outstanding. The only defects are a faint hairline scratch on the lower portion of the neck, a tiny planchet flake in the field off the tip of the nose (as struck), and a couple tiny struck-through lines on the chin (also as struck). M-LDS, die state c. The fine die crack from the bust tip toward star 1 is clear.
