Lot 80

1821 N-2 R1 PCGS graded AU58, CAC Approved. Glossy dark steel brown and chocolate with lighter steel brown and tan in protected areas, particularly on the reverse. Looks mint state but there is a hint of friction on the highest points of the devices. The best identifying mark is a small splash of darker steel brown toning nestled between the C in CENT and the leaf to the left. Nicely struck EDS. The die line from the bust is strong, all the stars show radial lines, and the fields are slightly reflective. A very attractive example of a date that is difficult to find in high grade, and it comes with a nice provenance. Our grade is AU55. Noyes says MS60 net AU55 and tied for CC#10, his photo #21866. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; 3 finer, 1 in 62, 2 in 63 for the variety. Estimate Value $6,000 - UP
