1851 C-1 R1. PCGS graded MS-65 Red. CAC Approved. Bright original mint red just starting to mellow to light steel brown on the highpoints, 90% of the original color remaining. Looks like a solid gem example, but there are a few light contact marks scattered about the obverse, including a nick on the eyebrow, plus a small spot of dark steel toning at the dentils close under star 4. MDS. The fields are satiny rather than reflective but the repunching right of the base of the second 1 is sharp. Our grade is MS64. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded in RD for the variety. (PCGS # 35326) .
Estimated Value $2,500-UP.
