1829 N-3 R3 Medium Letters PCGS graded AU58, CAC Approved. Frosty medium chocolate brown with slightly lighter steel brown toning in protected areas. The fields and protected areas are covered with attractive mint luster and this cent offers outstanding eye appeal. No defects, just very light friction on the highpoints of the devices. A tiny, very light nick under the ear lobe and a meandering hairline scratch over the E in ONE can help identify this cent. MDS. Very nicely struck showing none of the weak areas that tend to plague this Medium Letters variety. This is the plate coin for the variety in John Wright's The Cent Book. Our grade is AU50. Noyes says AU50 net EF45 and tied for CC#2, his photo #25283. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; 1 finer in 64 for the variety. Estimate Value $4,000 - UP
