Lot 63

1811/10 S-286 R3 Overdate 11 over 10 PCGS graded AU53. Glossy medium chocolate brown and steel with a subtle hint of reddish chocolate toning in protected areas on the reverse. No corrosion or verdigris, only a few faint contact marks. The notable ones are a fine diagonal hairline scratch across the bust and a nearly vertical one down from the dentils towards the back of the head. Neither mark is visible without a glass and this cent offers excellent eye appeal. MDS, Breen state II, with dull die clashmarks right of ONE CENT. The overdate feature is obvious to the unaided eye. Our grade is EF40+. Noyes says AU55 net EF45 and tied for CC#3, his photo #34169. An attractive cent that comes with a great provenance. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; 5 finer, 1 in 58, 1 in 63, 1 in 65, 2 in 66 for the variety. Estimate Value $20,000 - UP
