1806 C-1 Stemless Wreath R1. PCGS graded MS-66+ Red & Brown. CAC Approved. Lustrous mint red mellowing to light steel brown, at least a third of the red remaining, mostly on the obverse. The best identifying mark, and it is trivial, is a speck of carbon at the right top of the C in CENT. A gem example with outstanding eye appeal, possibly the finest known of the Draped Bust type. The reverse is rotated 40 degrees CCW. Our grade is MS65. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded in RB for the variety. (PCGS # 35192) .
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
