1849 Large Date C-1 R2-. PCGS graded MS-65 Brown. CAC Approved. Very attractive steel brown with underlying faded mint red on the obverse and bluish steel overtones on the reverse. The only defects are a pair of very tiny vertical nicks in the field under star 4. Very early die state, Manley state 1.0 early, with smooth, slightly reflective fields on both sides. Evidence of a chatter strike shows on the obverse where the date and stars are sharply doubled. Outstanding eye appeal. The sharp strike and prooflike fields have encouraged some to label this piece a proof. Our grade is MS64 Prooflike. Weight 85.4 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; tied with the following lot for finest graded of the variety. (PCGS # 35318) .
