Description 1788 1C Massachusetts Cent, Period AU50 NGC. R. 3-E, W-6220, R.4. A scarce variety that is usually only found in grades lower than XF. The October 2004 Ford sale had a lovely Mint State piece, with another similar piece in the American Numismatic Society holdings. Only about a dozen examples grade XF or AU, including this lovely piece from the Eric P. Newman Collection. The pleasing chestnut-brown surfaces exhibit light granularity, with several planchet flaws and retained laminations. However, this is still a charming example with good overall eye appeal. 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. Realized $1,175.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
