1846 N-12 R1 Tall Date PCGS graded MS64 Red & Brown, CAC Approved. Frosty mint red fading to light steel brown on the devices with at least half the mint red remaining on both sides. A lustrous, very attractive cent. The only notable marks are a tiny puff of slightly darker toning nestled between the upper right points of star 4, a larger area of similar toning off the tip of the coronet, and traces of an old fingerprint in the field behind the portrait. Scarce EDS, die state a, with fine repunching left of the base of the 4. All the fine die lines from the neck are crisp. Our grade is MS64, tied for CC#1 in the Grellman census. A great "Tall Date" 1846 cent. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 3; tied for the finest of the variety at both services. Estimate Value $2,750 - UP
