1808/7 C-2 Overdate 8 over 7 R3. PCGS graded MS-64+ Brown. CAC Approved. Choice frosty light brown with smooth, very attractive surfaces. The only marks, and they are trivial, are a very tiny vertical hairline scratch between the E and R in LIBERTY, a small nick on the bust tip, a speck of reddish brown toning close before the bust tip, and a spot of darker steel brown toning over AT in STATES. E-MDS, Manley state 2.0 early, with a fine die crack through the tops of ERTY. Sharply struck with outstanding eye appeal, the only mint state example of this popular overdate variety. Plated on page 284 in the Breen encyclopedia to illustrate the variety (the large photos), and listed first in the Breen/Hanson condition census on page 285 where Breen states this is "The only true mint state 1808/7 overdate known!" Our grade is MS60. Comes from a long line of great collections as well, which should come as no surprise. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only MS graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35212) .
Estimated Value $100,000-UP.
