1808/7 C-1 Overdate 8 over 7 R7. PCGS graded EF-40 Brown. CAC Approved. Nice glossy dark chocolate brown with smooth, attractive surfaces. The notable marks are a tiny nick on the top edge of the bust, a speck of crud on the bottom of the I in LIBERTY, and a small planchet flake in the field at the throat, as struck, plus a thin nick down through the R in AMERICA. Struck with slightly misaligned dies. The obverse is properly centered while the reverse is a bit off center to K-7.5 with weakness at ERICA, as always on this extremely rare variety. LDS, Manley state 2.0, with obvious die cracks at ITED-STATES and a clear rim cud break at D-S. Plated on page 282 in the Breen encyclopedia to illustrate the variety and his die state II, and on page 67 in the second edition of the Cohen reference to illustrate the variety. Our grade is VF30. Finest known example of this popular rarity by a very wide margin and a highlight of this superb collection. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35209) .
