1800 C-1 R2. PCGS graded MS-65 Brown. Highly lustrous bluish steel brown with hints of very faded mint red in protected areas. Some frosty golden tan toning is found at ERICA and the fraction. The only defects are a bit of very fine carbon nestled into the nostril and a small spot of similar carbon midway between the throat and the rim. M-LDS, Manley state 4.0, with a thin rim cud from K-10 to K-12 on the obverse and a fine double profile on the tip of the nose (from die bounce). The curl left of the date is weak, nearly open now due to die wear and lapping. A lustrous, attractive example in spite of the minor marks. Our grade is MS62+. Plated on page 200 in the Breen encyclopedia to illustrate the variety (the large photos). Weight 87.4 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded in BN (PCGS # 35119) .
Estimated Value $6,000-UP.
