||1803 1C Small Date, Large Fraction, S-259, B-18, R.4 -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. XF. Our EAC Grade Fine 15. S-259 shares the same reverse as the "common" S-258, noted for its flare-like die line over the D in UNITED. But the scarce S-259 is from a different obverse die that places the T in LIBERTY partly right of the curl. The ebony-brown surfaces are well defined and evenly microgranular. Careful inspection is required to locate two dull marks; one above the bust tip and the other the left upright of the N in ONE. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
