Condition Census 1849 N-1

Frosty medium steel brown and light olive with traces of mint red still visible, mostly on the reverse. Mint luster shows in the fields, especially on the reverse, and this piece has excellent eye appeal. A tiny, barely visible scratch between star 2 and the chin is the only notable mark. MDS, die state c, with crumbling inside the bottom of the R in AMERICA. The horizontal line inside the O in OF is strong (Newcomb’s old #15). Our grade is MS60, tied for CC#6 honors for the variety in the Grellman census.
