1834 N-5 R5 Large 8 & Stars, Medium Letters PCGS graded AU55, CAC Approved. Glossy medium chocolate brown and steel delicately woodgrained with lighter brown on the obverse. Satiny mint frost covers the fields and protected areas on both sides and the eye appeal of this cent is excellent. No spots, stains, or notable contact marks. The best identifying mark is a tiny planchet flake off the upper point of star 5 (as struck). LDS. Both dies are worn and the tops of ICA in AMERICA are weak. There is a clear triple profile on the forehead with lighter double and triple outlines on the lips and chin (all caused by die bounce). A very nice example of this tough "Redbook" variety. Our grade is EF45. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; 1 finer in 65 for the variety. Estimate Value $4,000 - UP
