1846 N-11 R1 Medium Date PCGS graded MS64 Red & Brown, CAC Approved. Frosty mellowed mint red fading to bluish steel on the devices, about half the faded red remaining on both sides. The only marks are some very tiny specks of darker toning sprinkled over the obverse, including a couple near the dentils over star 4 and one between the inner point of star 13 and the curl above. A cent with great eye appeal. MDS, die state a late. The fine diagonal die lines from the dentils under the date are weak, strongest under the 6. Called MS64 and CC#1 in the Noyes census, his photo #31205. Our grade is MS64, CC#1 in the Grellman census. Since this is a one-variety "Redbook" type, the piece offered here is a must-have item for a #1 "Redbook" registry set. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 3; tied for the finest of the variety graded at both services. Estimate Value $4,000 - UP
