Lot 415
1816 N-1 R4. VG-10. A couple points sharper with a few too many light contact marks for the sharpness grade. None of these marks is distracting, and a short diagonal nick under the left end of the line below CENT is the best identifying mark. Glossy light chocolate brown. MDS with crumbling in the dentils at stars 8-11 and a faint die crack through the top of ITED.
Estimated Value $125 - 150.

1817 N-1 R4. VF-35. Frosty medium brown with delicate wisps of darker steel brown and chocolate on both sides. Attractive flowline luster covers the protected areas. The only mark is a small rim nick left of star 1. Otherwise this cent is choice and the eye appeal is excellent. LDS.

Lot 419
1817 N-2 R3. AU-50. Sharpness closer to mint state but there is a small, dull punchmark under star 13, a trip of tiny rim nicks under the 17, and a couple faint contact marks over star 1. Otherwise the surfaces are satiny and quite attractive with ample mint luster showing on both sides. Possibly dipped long ago but the toning is an attractive lustrous steel brown and chocolate with lighter steel brown in protected areas. MDS with a die crack through the first S in STATES but no additional die cracks on either side. The strike is a bit uneven, strong at the top of the obverse and bottom of the reverse while weaker at the bottom of the obverse and top of the reverse (thanks to non-parallel die faces). Near the lower end of the condition census.
Estimated Value $600 - 800.

Lot 422
1817 N-14 R1. AU-50. A bit closer to mint state but there are a few contact marks in the field before the nose and a couple lighter ones in the field above the head.

Frosty medium steel brown with mint luster covering the protected areas. No spots or stains. MDS. Softly struck on the upper half of the outer hairbun and on the opposing leaves under ICA, as usual.

1818 N-6 R1. MS-60. Lustrous steel brown and chocolate with overtones of light bluish steel. The fields are satiny and offer excellent eye appeal in spite of a few trivial contact marks, mostly at the forehead and in the field under the chin. A dull rim nick at the C in AMERICA is the best identifying mark for this cent. Sharply struck EDS, much sharper than usually encountered for this variety.

1818 N-10 R1. AU-58. Lustrous dark olive brown and chocolate with a splash of light brown toning between stars 5 & 6. The only contact mark of any significance is a dull rim nick over the E in AMERICA. MDS. Most likely from the famous Randall Hoard die state.
