||1830 1C Large Letters, N-3, R.3, MS64 Brown NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade AU55. Die cracks cross two-thirds of the obverse border, neglecting stars 4 and 5. The first T in STATES is much closer to the A than the S. A double set of clash marks appears east of the T in CENT and elsewhere within the wreath. Sea-green undertones enhance the reverse of this lustrous medium brown near-Gem. Glimpses of mint red linger in protected regions. The fields are smooth, and the portrait shows only minute contact. Census: 2 in 64 Brown, 2 finer (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
