1826/5 N-8 R2 PCGS graded MS64 Brown, CAC Approved. Very attractive lustrous medium steel brown and light olive. Satiny mint frost covers all but the highest points of the devices and this cent offers outstanding eye appeal. The only marks, and they are barely visible, are a tiny planchet chip under the right corner of the eye (as struck), a microscopic diagonal nick in the center of the neck, and a speck of carbon at a dentil tip over star 11. MDS. The fields are covered with fine die flowlines and there is a bit of crumbling tucked between the diagonal and left upright of the N in ONE. The 6/5 overdate feature is visible inside the top of the 6. Our grade is AU58+, very close to MS60. Noyes says MS60 net AU55 and tied for CC#10, his photo #58579. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; 2 finer, 1 in 65, 1 in 66 for the variety. Estimate Value $7,500 - UP
Ex McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Superior 6/1/1998:270-Tom Reynolds 2/2005.

Realized $27,025
