1C 1845 PCGS MS64BN N-13 NAFTZGER
We LOVE this near miss GEM! Its definitely a date and grade you hardly EVER see!
In the catalog it was described as: Glossy greenish olive brown with facets of mint red showing in protected areas, especially on the obverse. The fields are satiny and the only marks are a few small splashes of slightly darker toning off the tip of the coronet. Nicely struck with full radial lines in all the stars except for #5, which is nearly always relatively weak on this variety. E-MDS, die state a. The fields are just starting to show microscopic die flow lines but many of the fine die polishing lines still can be found in the obverse fields (these extend from NNW down to SSE and are strongest close behind the head). Called MS60 and tied for CC#5 in the Noyes census, his photo #31608. Our grade is MS60+, tied for CC#5 in the Grellman census. Estimated Value $400-UP. Ex Russell Wyatt, Superior 9/30/85:717.
The eye appeal is terrific and looks better than just an MS64!
