1837 10C No Stars, Large Date, F-101b, R.2, MS65 S NGC. CAC. This piece is in the early stages of the die state, showing the radial crack from the obverse rim at 4 o'clock but not the other at 7 o'clock. The fields are semiprooflike, and the sharpness of the strike is outstanding; a partial wire rim surrounds each periphery. Silvery interiors cede to original lavender, sea-green, and yellow-gold toning in the margins. Census: 28 in 65 (2 in 65 Star), 32 finer. CAC: 16 in 65, 4 finer (8/17). 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 @ $90.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
