||1826/5 1C N-8, R.2, MS64 Brown NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade AU55. The crossbar of a 5 is plain beneath the upper loop of the 6. A trace of the upper curve of the 5 is seen above the loop of the 6. Since N-8 is the sole overdated 1826 variety, it has its own Guide Book listing and commands a large premium in Uncirculated grades. The present chocolate-brown and mahogany near-Gem is nearly devoid of carbon. Marks are minimal and essentially relegated to the left edge of Liberty's neck. The strike is crisp save for stars 7 and 11. An important opportunity for the specialist. Census: 5 in 64 Brown, 1 finer (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
