1843 N-17 R5 Mature Head, Large Letters PCGS graded MS64 Red & Brown, CAC Approv. Mint red fading to light steel brown on the highpoints, at least half the original color remaining. There are some insignificant specks of darker toning scattered over the obverse, the largest of these under the junction of the 1 & 8 in the date. The only signs of contact are a thin diagonal nick in the field over the inner hair bun, one more right of the outer hair bun, and a third on the chin. EDS with smooth, prooflike fields on both sides. The beauty of this cent is enhanced when you consider its rarity and the fact that the next finest piece grades only net VF35. Called MS65 and CC#1 in the Noyes census, his photo #31125. Our grade is MS64 prooflike and CC#1 by a very wide margin in the Grellman census. A highlight of this (or any other) collection of large cents. The attribution and Naftzger provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; none finer for the variety at either service. Estimated Value $15,000-UP
