1804 C-11 Plain 4 with Stems R3+. PCGS graded MS-64 Brown. Lustrous steel brown with frosty light brown and tan in protected areas. There is a spot of darker reddish brown toning under the bust tip and a pair of very faint hairline scratches passing down the neck. MDS, Manley state 2.0, with minor swelling inside the wreath and some strike weakness at the wreath bow and on the T in CENT, as usual. Our grade is AU55. Probably the finest known example of this popular "Redbook" variety. The two supposedly finer but unseen examples listed in the Breen/Hanson census on pages 254 and 255 are untraced and this may be one of them. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only MS graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35170) .
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
