1804 C-6 Spiked Chin R2. PCGS graded MS-65 Brown. Lustrous light steel brown with darker steel brown toning on the highpoints and hints of very faded mint red in protected areas on the reverse. The surfaces are virtually flawless, a tiny rim nick at the I in LIBERTY and a very faint diagonal hairline in the hair at the shoulder are the only notable defects, and they are trivial. LDS, Manley state 11.0, Braig 8.0, with the cud over the M complete in addition to the earlier cud breaks connecting half the reverse legend to the rim. The "Spiked Chin" feature is bold. Rarity-4- as a die state. Our grade is MS60+. One of the finest known of the variety and a great example of the "Spiked Chin" type. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only MS graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35161) .
Estimated Value $8,500-UP.
