1850 N-27 R4 PCGS  MS64                     $2950

Lustrous steel and light olive brown with nearly a third of the mint red remaining, mostly on the obverse. A spot of reddish chocolate toning over star 9, another at the dentils under the right side of the 8 in the date, and a third on the bust tip are the notable marks, and they do catch your eye. There are a few other smaller spots of dark toning elsewhere on the obverse, but they are not significant. The reverse is choice, nearly flawless. E-MDS, die state a (there is no state b for this variety). The fields on both sides are covered with satiny frost created by microscopic die flowlines.
