||1807 1C Comet, S-271, B-1, R.1, VF35 NGC. Our EAC Grade VF20. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This deeply toned example displays deep olive-brown coloration. Some porosity is seen near the rims and devices, particularly on the reverse and in protected areas on the obverse. Minor encrustation is evident around some of the design elements. In other areas, the surfaces are smooth and glossy. The popular "Comet" die state shows the flaw behind the head broad and plain, thus Breen Die State IV or somewhat later. It is unusual as a die state (not a variety) with its own listing in the Guide Book. Nice detail remains for the assigned grade. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $15.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
