Description 1788 1C Massachusetts Cent, Period AU53 NGC. R. 11-E, W-6300, R.4. A scarce variety with a low overall census, and virtually unknown in Mint State. The Eric P. Newman example is a census level piece, perhaps fifth or sixth finest, in our opinion. Glossy olive and steel-brown surfaces exhibit old, microscopic granularity, along with a trivial obverse rim bruise at 5 o'clock. Otherwise, both sides are quite attractive for the grade. 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 @ $3.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,818.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
