||1819 1C Small Date, N-7, R.4, MS65 Brown NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade MS63. As usual for the scarce N-7, the obverse dentils are very faint. However, the stars are generally sharp and the portrait is well brought up. The reverse die is rusted, as made, and a die line connects the bases of the TE in STATES. Rich chocolate-brown toning dominates, but mint red is present in design crevices, especially on the reverse. As of 8/14, the single finest certified as N-7 by NGC, with an AU55 as its closest competitor. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
