1805 S-267 R1. MS-60 Plus. Lustrous steel brown and chocolate with traces of very faded mint red remaining in protected areas of the reverse. Lighter brown toning arcs down the left side of the reverse. The surfaces are satiny and the eye appeal is outstanding. The only marks are a few tiny ticks on the shoulder, a couple more in the hair over the ear, and another barely visible one on the front edge of the neck where it reaches the bust. These marks are well hidden and barely visible, even with the aid of a glass. A very attractive example for the grade, close to choice. Called MS60 and tied for CC#4 in the Noyes census, his photo #20691. Bland also says MS60 but tied for CC#5 in his list. M-LDS, Breen state III. There is a faint die crack that connects the tops of the A & M in AMERICA and dull die clashmarks are visible on both sides. Comes with a fantastic provenance. DWH #3515.
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
