Description 1810 1C S-284, B-5, R.3, AU55 NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade XF45. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The "T" in LIBERTY is distinctly low and leans to the left while the points of the highest leaves on the reverse are far to the right between STATES and OF, confirming the Sheldon-284 die pair. Dark chocolate-brown patina covers the surfaces on both sides with a glossy sheen. Weak denticles at the upper right reverse and lower right obverse are the result of axial misalignment of the dies, a characteristic of Breen's late Die State II. Traces of minor encrustation are most obvious among the letters of ONE CENT and in isolated areas within the wreath. A bold strike reinforces the Choice AU motifs. 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 @ $20.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4993.75.
