||1818 1C N-8, R.3, MS63 Brown NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade AU58. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The triple dentil beneath the first 8 in the date is diagnostic for this somewhat scarce Newcomb marriage. This is the early die state, without crumbling on the upper left obverse dentils. A tan-brown example, yet it retains glimpses of the initial Mint red in protected areas. 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 @ $8.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
