1847 N-24/25 R1 PCGS MS65             $1450

 

Lustrous medium steel brown and light olive with traces of mint color on both sides, especially on the reverse. A very attractive cent, essentially flawless. The best identifying marks are a microscopic planchet flake in the field off the end of the chin (as struck), a small spot of darker chocolate brown toning at the dentil tips between stars 6 & 7, and another spot of darker toning at the bottom of the E in CENT. M-LDS, die state c (Newcomb's #25). The die crack through the top of ME is clear and it reaches the dentils over the adjacent letters.

Ex G. Lee Kuntz, Superior 10/6/1991:547-Tony Terranova 6/1993-Chris McCawley 12/20/2010-Fred Iskra Collection.
