1822 N-2 R3 MS65. Beautiful lustrous mint red and bluish steel brown, nearly half the mint color showing on both sides. A wisp of darker bluish steel toning close under star 10 is the best identifying mark. MDS showing the usual die crack at stars 7-12, but the dentils are strong on both sides and the fine dash at S-O is clear. The dash at D-S is gone. A gem cent offering superb eye appeal. Called MS65+ and CC#1 in the Bland census. Noyes says MS65 choice and CC#1 as well. Removed from a PCGS slab graded MS65RB (PCGS label included, and it shows the attribution and Naftzger provenance).
Estimated Value $6,000-UP.
