Description 1811/0 1C S-286, B-2, R.3, XF45 NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade VF25. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Breen Die State I. Rich, dark chocolate-brown color and blue overtones cover the smooth, hard surfaces of this attractive overdated cent, always popular as a separate Guide Book variety. The coin is sharp and appealing, but shows some obverse flatness on several stars and on the high points of Liberty's curls and the wreath. The few scattered, small marks are consistent with the assigned grade. No Mint State examples are known for this variety. The finest piece recorded by Bland grades AU55 with two others as AU50. Noyes grades two coins AU50 and two others XF45. While the present example does not equal the top coins in the census, it deserves a supporting position based on its eye appeal and notable surface quality. 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 @ $25.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $5875.00.
