Description 1812 1C Large Date, S-288, B-3, R.2 -- Environmental Damage -- NGC. AU Details. Our EAC Grade VF30. Deep olive-brown toning covers the obverse of this Large Date variety, struck from the earliest state of the dies (Breen Die State I). Later die states show pitting from die rust, but the corrosion, pitting, and staining on this coin are due to environmental damage. The problems are mostly confined to the obverse, where dark areas of granularity surround several deeper surface pits. The reverse displays a more natural dark chocolate and steel patina, with only minor marks. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $528.75.
