Lot 304
1839 N-13 R2 NGC graded MS61 Brown. Frosty medium brown and light chocolate. Satiny mint frost covers the fields and protected areas on both sides. Looks mint state but there is a touch of friction on the highest points of the devices.

There are traces of soft dirt in some of the protected places (should be easy to remove if desired). M-LDS.

Lot 305
1839 N-14 R3 Booby Head MS60. Frosty medium brown and chocolate with traces of mint red remaining on the reverse. The fields are satiny and the eye appeal of this cent is outstanding. The notable marks are a few tiny ticks on the rim over star 9 and a faint lamination in the dentils at star 12. LDS. The rims are slightly dished and the fields and covered with fine die flowlines while several of the stars have their points drawn to the rim. Much of the peripheral detail has been weakened by flowlines and die wear but the central details are sharp. In addition the lowest curl over star 13 is softly struck (caused by a clog in the die). Otherwise this cent is choice. The reverse is cracked, as always, through the tops of STATES OF A. Called MS60 and tied for CC#5 in the Noyes census, his photo #27016. Removed from a PCGS slab graded MS63BN (PCGS label #37255.63/15115722 included, and it shows the attribution and Holmes provenance). Estimate Value $2,400 - UP
