1803 C-4 R4 PCGS Graded "Genuine" Uncirculated Details, Cleaning. A lustrous mint state coin but there are myriad extremely faint hairlines on both sides, most likely the result of an improper brushing. Attractive bluish steel brown with smooth, satiny surfaces. There are a few faint specks of slightly darker toning on the face and in the field to the right. The only notable mark is a tiny planchet flake, as struck, on the rim left of the lowest curl. The die clashmarks on the reverse are sharp. Struck with the reverse perfectly oriented head-to-foot. Our grade is MS sharpness net AU58. Listed second in the Breen/Hanson census. Plated on page 220 in the Breen encyclopedia illustrating his die state II (PCGS # 35137) .
