1825 C-2 R1. PCGS graded MS-64 Red & Brown. CAC Approved. The obverse is mint red fading to steel brown, darkest on the face, about two-thirds of the mint color remaining. The reverse is very faded red and bluish steel brown with 20% of the mellowed red present. The only defects are a collection of very dull vertical nicks on the cheek and a small spot of darker steel toning midway between the date and star 13. MDS, Manley state 2.0. The end of the wreath stem is weak from die lapping but it remains visible. Our grade is MS63. Certainly one of the finest of this date, possibly CC#1 by a small margin considering the amount of mint color. Both sides are illustrated on the color plates at the back of the Breen encyclopedia. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only RB graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35250) .
Estimated Value $7,500-UP.
Ex William K. Raymond 9/8/1976-R. Tettenhorst-EPNNES-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 25.2.5).

Realized $9,488
