||1811 1C S-287, B-1, R.2, AU55 NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade XF45. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Deep, reddish-brown patina provides plentiful eye appeal for this Choice About Uncirculated cent. The coin is well struck from the early Breen I die state, but with the typical axial misalignment of the dies, which results in flatness of the left stars, bust truncation, and weakness in UNITED on the reverse. Hints of mint red remain around the stars, legend, and central devices. A nice representative of the Classic Head design, and a scarcer date as well. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
