1843 N-16 R4 PCGS MS64            $3200

Frosty light olive and steel. Satiny mint luster covers the planchet and the eye appeal of this cent is excellent. The only defect is a thin planchet lamination from the dentils over star 4 to the coronet and LIB. Too bad because this cent would have been a beautiful gem example of a tough die variety. Very sharply struck E-MDS with microscopic radial die flowlines in the fields that create the attractive cartwheel luster. Called MS60 and tied for CC#3 in the Noyes census, his photo #31224.
