Lot 75

1819 N-2 R1 Large Date PCGS graded AU58. Very attractive glossy olive and chocolate brown with hints of very faded mint color in a few of the protected areas. Sharply struck with just a hint of friction on the highest points of the devices. The only notable mark is a tiny nick in the field off the chin. Earliest die state with smooth, reflective fields on both sides and no trace of die rust. The repunching on the 9 (may be an undertype 8 or a misplaced 9) is sharp. A cent that offers outstanding eye appeal for the grade. Our grade is AU50+, very close to AU55. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 3; 11 finer for the variety. Estimate Value $1,000 - UP
