Condition Census 1847 N-6

Frosty light olive and steel brown with 30% of the planchet showing mellowed mint red. The only notable mark is a tiny speck of carbon left of star 5. MDS, die state b. The repunching left of the base of the 4 is gone but the short die line from the dentils right of star 6 is sharp. Our grade is MS60+, tied for CC#6 honors in the Grellman census. Comes with a very nice provenance.
