Description 1803 1C No Stems, S-243, B-1, R.2 -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. VF. Our EAC Grade VG7. A distinctive variety due to its engraving errors on the reverse. Die steel was unforgiving, and too valuable to discard because of one mistake (or, in some cases, several). The high points are medium brown and the reverse field is ebony. The obverse displays occasional green verdigris. The scarce late die state with a sizeable rim die break at the TY in LIBERTY. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $99.88.
