More obvious crumbling, between the CE in CENT as well as other areas, is from prior die states. The strike is intricate except on star 5. Surfaces are essentially devoid of contact. One small strike-through (as coined) appears on the neck near a curl. As of 8/14, the single finest cent certified by NGC as 1849 N-5, and the sole Red and Brown example. NGC has certified six pieces as Brown with the two highest graded at the MS64 level. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2820.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
