||1817 1C 13 Stars, N-9, R.2, MS62 Brown NGC. Our EAC Grade AU50. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. A wide space between the 81 in the date and a die crack along the right reverse margin attribute the Newcomb marriage. The strike shows incompleteness on the forehead and upper leaves, but the right-side stars are sharp. This golden-brown and tan example has smooth fields and shows minimal contact on the portrait. 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 @ $7.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
