1797 C-1 R2 1 Above 1 EF45. Choice glossy light chocolate brown with darker steel brown toning on the highpoints. Frosty mint luster covers the protected areas on both sides and this piece offers outstanding eye appeal for the grade. Virtually flawless, the only mark being a thin planchet void or crease (as struck) at the dentils over the second S in STATES. MDS, Manley state 3.0 early. The obverse is cracked and swollen, but the radial crack down through the Y in LIBERTY has not formed. The legends are complete and strong on both sides and the misplaced 1 above 1 feature is bold. The reverse is rotated 20 degrees CCW. Removed from a PCGS slab graded AU58 (PCGS label included, #1042.58/90011661, and the 1 above 1 feature is noted on the label). Came in tied for third finest in the 2006 Half Cent Happening at the EAC Convention. Weight 95.5 grains.
Estimated Value $6,000-UP.
Provenance: Ex McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Superior 1/2/2006:8-Michael Spurlock 3/19/2007.
