1829 C-1 R1. PCGS graded MS-65+ Red & Brown. CAC Approved. (Gold Sticker). Mint red mellowing to light steel brown on the highpoints, 70% of the red showing on the obverse, 85% on the reverse. Essentially flawless except for a faint nearly vertical hairline scratch on the cheek, a tiny streak of darker toning in the field before the forehead, and four tiny ticks above the 82 in the date. Outstanding eye appeal in spite of the trivial defects. M-LDS, Manley state 2.0. The spike up from the C in CENT is barely visible and many of the stars are drawn to the rim. Both sides are illustrated in the color plates at the back of the Breen encyclopedia. A beautiful half cent, the only one in this collection awarded a CAC GOLD sticker. Our grade is MS65. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest RB graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35268) .
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
Ex William K. Raymond 9/8/1976-R. Tettenhorst-EPNNES-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 29.1.3).
