1851 1C N-20, N-28, R.3, AU55 NGC. This is a middle die state example without lines near stars 1 and 2, and with CE in CENT spaced apart. The first 1 in the date is repunched several times, resulting in at least three horizontal dashes below and to the right. Medium chocolate-brown fields display slight reddish-violet accents. Although the stars lack radial lines and the centermost hair strands exhibit a hint of blending, the overall design remains crisp. Smooth, with a single small dig above the lowest curl. Our EAC grade XF40. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
