1804 C-8 Spiked Chin R1. PCGS graded MS-66 Brown. CAC Approved. The obverse is highly lustrous blue steel and medium brown with traces of mint red. The reverse is lustrous light steel brown with generous traces of the original mint color remaining. The surfaces are satiny and choice. Outstanding eye appeal. The only defects are a few tiny specks of fine carbon on both sides, including a couple in the field left of the lower curls, one at the dentils over T in UNITED, and another over the ER in AMERICA. The specks helped identify this piece as the plate coin for die state III on page 244 in the Breen encyclopedia. MDS, Manley state 3.0. The die crack through LIBER is clear but not strong. The "Spiked Chin" feature is strong. Our grade is MS63. Certainly one of the finest known. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35167) .
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
Ex Hugh Campbell-Delmar N. Bland- William K. Raymond 9/8/1976-R. Tettenhorst-EPNNES-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 04.8.6).

Realized $66,125
