Description 1812 1C Small Date, S-290, B-2, R.1, AU53 NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade XF40. Block 8. The date digits are nearly level, unlike S-291, which has a high first 1. This ebony-brown cent exhibits light high point wear on the leaves and curls, but luster emerges from the motifs, stars, and legends when the coin is rotated beneath a light. Carbon is absent and the surfaces are only minutely granular. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $5875.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
