1800 1C S-212, B-20, R.3 -- Obv Scratched -- NGC Details. Unc. Breen Die State III, an intermediate die state before the appearance of obverse die cracks. This impressive piece exhibits strong cartwheel luster on its tan and dark olive-brown surfaces, with traces of mint red in the protected areas on each side. The right obverse field and the left reverse field between the D in UNITED and S in STATES exhibit well-blended old scratches that are only visible in certain angles. William Noyes grades this piece MS60 sharpness, net 40, and we agree with his assessment. Only two examples in the Noyes Condition Census have Mint State sharpness, and the other one is finest known with a net grade of AU50. Our EAC grade XF40. 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 @ $35.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Possibly earlier from the E.W. Ropes Collection (New York Coin and Stamp Co., 2/1899), lot 49.
