||1852 1C N-5, R.2 -- Damaged -- NGC Details. AU. Our EAC Grade XF40. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Grellman Die State b. A briefly circulated tan-brown cent. The "damaged" assessment appears harsh, since the two thin marks beneath the N in ONE are fairly minor, as is the hair-thin horizontal line beneath the date. This is a mint error, since the diameter is wider than normal at 28 mm with a flat and broad 2 mm rim. Presumably, the planchet missed the customary pass through the upset mill prior to the strike. 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 @ $2.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
