Lot 293

1854 C-1 R1+. PCGS graded MS-64 Red. Lustrous bright original mint red mellowing to light steel on the highpoints, about 90% of the original color remaining. A solid gem if not for traces of an old fingerprint in the field before the neck and above the coronet. A tiny tick in the field close under the chin is the only contact mark, and it is visible only with the aid of a glass. MDS, Manley state 2.0 early. Comes in a slab with an old Green PCGS label. EAC grade consistent with the slab grade.
Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,500.
Ex Jim McGuigan.

Realized $2,070
