1804 C-9 R2. PCGS graded MS-65+ Brown. CAC Approved. Highly lustrous light brown with steel brown highpoints and a splash of reddish brown toning at LIB into the hair below. The obverse retains 5% of the original mint color while the reverse has 25% of the red remaining. Would rate an even higher grade if not for a speck of carbon at the left top of the E in LIBERTY and another inside the top of the A in HALF. LDS, Manley state 5.0. The cud break at RTY is strong and a clear die crack extends from the crosslet of the 4 through the bust to the rim at right. Our grade is MS63. High in the condition census for the variety and finest known of those with the cud break at RTY. Plated in the Breen encyclopedia on page 57 to illustrate the uncirculated grade for Draped Bust half cents, then on page 247 to show his die state VII, and again in the color photos at the end of the book where both sides are displayed as a bit of eye candy for all to enjoy. Also listed on page 247 as finest known. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; tied with the preceding example for finest graded of the variety. (PCGS # 35155) .
Estimated Value $8,500-UP.
Ex Jon G. Hanson at the 1979 A.N.A. Convention-R. Tettenhorst-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 04.9.4).
