1840 N-10 R2 Large Date PCGS graded MS65 Red & Brown, CAC Approved. Lustrous mint red fading to light steel brown, two-thirds of the original mint color remaining. Excellent eye appeal, close to gem. The notable defects are a thin planchet lamination from the rim down through the U in UNITED to the wreath below (as struck), plus a tiny carbon spot close under the C in CENT and another over the left side of the N in ONE. Sharply struck EDS, die state a. The dull die line at the dentil tips over MERI is clear. Our grade is MS64+. Finest known by a small margin in the Grellman census that contains only 5 confirmed mint state examples for this variety. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; tied for finest RB graded at both services. Estimate Value $3,300 - UP
