1840 N-12 R1 PCGS MS64                $3950



Frosty light chocolate brown and steel with nearly 10% of the mint red remaining on the obverse, 25% on the reverse. There are about a dozen very tiny specks of darker toning scattered over the obverse fields, the largest of these at star 8, plus traces of an old fingerprint under the date. The only other mark of note is a long, very light nick or planchet void on the jaw. None of these marks is distracting and the eye appeal of this cent is excellent. Nicely struck EDS, die state a, showing radial lines in all of the stars.
