1826 C-1 R1 AU50. Chatter Strike. Sharpness closer to mint state but both sides are covered with a very thin coat of lacquer or some similar protective substance. The surfaces are highly glossy, almost prooflike, as a result of the coating and the eye appeal is outstanding as a result. Glossy light chocolate and steel brown with a few peeps of faded mint red remaining visible on the reverse. The only mark is a shallow planchet chip at the dentil tips under the 2 in the date, as struck. LDS, Manley state 5.0. The die lines right of the date are visible but weak and the ones at the top of the head are gone. There are multiple outlines or profiles ranging from 2 to 5 sharp, clear outlines on the date, stars, legend, and wreath from die bounce.
Estimated Value $300-UP.

Realized $294
