1820 N-14 R5- Large Date NGC graded MS62 Brown. Very attractive frosty chocolate brown and steel with a hint of reddish chocolate toning at the 18 in the date. Satiny mint luster covers the fields and protected areas and this cent has great eye appeal. Looks mint state but there is a touch of friction on the highest points of the devices. The only notable mark, and it is insignificant, is a minor rim bruise at the U in UNITED. MDS. Both sides are covered with fine radial die flowlines, as always for this variety, which is the product of a brief marriage of worn-out dies. Called EF40 and CC#3 in the Bland census. Noyes says EF45 net VF35 and tied for CC#4, his photo #25234. Our grade is EF40+, close to EF45. The attribution and Mervis provenance are noted on the NGC label. Pop 1; the finest example graded at NGC for the variety, only 1 example graded higher in 66 BN at PCGS. Estimated Value $7,500 - UP
