1819 N-8 R1 MS62.
Lustrous bluish steel and olive with 15% of the mint color remaining on the obverse but only traces of faded red showing on the reverse. The surfaces are satiny and offer excellent eye appeal. Would qualify for a choice rating except for a small spot of darker toning at the left foot of the second T in STATES and a very dull contact mark between the feet of the C & E in CENT. In addition there is a small depression in the dentils at the first A in AMERICA caused by a stray planchet cutter impression. MDS. The fields are covered with fine radial die flowlines but most of the dentils remain visible. Removed from a PCGS slab graded MS63RB
(PCGS label included).
Estimated Value $500-UP.
