1806 C-3 R6 Small 6 with Stems. Good-5 Plus. The obverse is very slightly weaker while the reverse is a bit stronger. Close to Good-6 overall. Slightly glossy steel and light chocolate brown. No notable roughness, but there are several old, faint vertical scratches in the field before the portrait and some old hairline scratches on the reverse, mostly inside the wreath. All the scratches are so old they are worn away where they cross over the devices, and they blend into the natural toning. The date and legends are complete and strong except for the upper half of LIBERTY, which is flowing into the rim above. MDS, Manley state 2.0, with a die crack at CA but before the cud break occurs. Not in the condition census (the finest known grades Fine-15) but certainly an acceptable example of this extremely rare variety.
Estimated Value $8,000 - 10,000.
Ex Rick Leonard-Don Valenziano 1991-Wally Gilligan, Bowers & Merena 5/27/94:112.

Realized $11,500
