1853 N-8 R3 PCGS MS65                $2350

 

Lustrous mint red fading to steel brown, nearly a third of the red remaining, mostly on the reverse. Satiny mint frost covers this cent and the eye appeal is outstanding. There is a spot of very fine carbon between the bun and star 10 and a smaller one off the tip of the coronet, plus a couple more specks of darker toning elsewhere on the obverse and a collection of tiny planchet flakes in the leaves over the E in ONE (as struck). Otherwise this cent is flawless. Nicely struck MDS, die state b.
