1799/8 1C S-188, B-2, R.4, Good 6 NGC. CAC. Breen Die State II, showing faint clash marks on the obverse. Our EAC grade is commensurate with the NGC grade, this piece grading VG8 on the obverse and Good 4 on the reverse. LIBERTY is bold while the bottoms of the date digits lightly merge into the border. Most of the legend letters on the reverse merge with the border. The light steel-brown surfaces are exceptionally smooth and pleasing, especially for the low numerical grade. A Choice designation is intuitive. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp and Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $50.00; Eric P.
