1827 N-7 R3 MS64. Lustrous light chocolate and bluish steel brown with a few hints of golden reddish tan faded down from mint color in protected areas. Satiny mint frost covers the planchet and the eye appeal is excellent. Only a few microscopic marks, including a tiny hairline between the date and star 13 and a small nick or pre-striking planchet mark close over the nostril. Nicely struck MDS with traces of repunching visible on the 8 in the date and fine die flowlines covering the fields. Called MS65 choice and tied for CC#1 in the Noyes census, his photo #20883. Bland says MS63 and tied for CC#1. Removed from a PCGS slab graded MS65BN (PCGS label included, and it shows the attribution and Naftzger provenance).
Estimated Value $3,000-UP.
