1835 N-1 R1 Head of 1834, Large 8 PCGS graded MS63 Brown, CAC Approved. Lustrous medium steel brown and light chocolate with a few tiny peeps of faded mint red remaining in protected areas. There is a subtle hint of woodgrained darker steel brown toning on the obverse, most noticeably from star 2 to the throat. Just a few trivial contact marks, including a couple faint horizontal hairlines under stars 7 & 8 and a vertical nick on the lower part of the neck above the 18. MDS. The obverse is cracked through most of the stars, as always, but the radial branch crack from below star 11 to the dentils has not formed. There is a strong double profile from the forehead down to the chin plus weaker doubling on several of the stars (caused by die bounce). A very nice cent. Our grade is AU58. Noyes photo #56765. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 3; 1 finer in 65 for the variety. Estimate Value $750 - UP
