1847 N-38 R1 PCGS graded MS65 Red & Brown, CAC Approved. Very attractive lustrous mint red mellowing to light steel brown on the devices, about 75% of the mint color remaining (85% obverse, 65% reverse). No notable spots or stains, and this cent looks flawless to the unaided eye. The best identifying marks are a very faint diagonal scuff of hairlines on the cheek left of the ear lobe and a small nick on the nose before the eye. EDS, die state a. The obverse die is unclashed and there are very fine crisscrossed die lines at the inner curl. Our grade is MS64+, very close to MS65, and tied for CC#2 in the Grellman census. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; none finer for the variety. Estimate Value $3,500 - UP
Ex Richard Jewell Collection, American Numismatic Rarities 3/8/2005:1180 (includes the lot ticket and collection pillbox).

Realized $6,169
