1812 S-290 R1 Small Date PCGS graded AU58, CAC Approved. Lustrous chocolate and darker steel brown with generous traces of faded mint red showing in protected areas, especially on the reverse. Mint frost covers all but the very highest points of the devices and this cent has mint state eye appeal. Nearly flawless. The best identifying mark is a tiny planchet flake at the dentils over the right side of the N in UNITED (as struck). M-LDS, Breen state IV early, with dull die lines at ITE but before the rim cud formed at TE in UNITED. Our grade is AU55. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 3; 5 finer, 1 in 62, 1 in 63+, 1 in 64, 2 in 65 for the variety. Estimate Value $5,000 - UP
