Condition Census 1848 N-15

Lustrous light olive brown with generous traces of mint red on the obverse and 15% of the reverse showing mint color. The surfaces are satiny and this cent has excellent eye appeal. The only defects are a nick in the center of the cheek, a very tiny rim bruise at star 3, and a rim nick at the T in UNITED. Only the nick on the cheek catches your eye. EDS, die state a. The reverse is uncracked and all the fine die lines are clear. A sharp, attractive cent. Our grade is MS60, tied for CC#4 in the Grellman census. And it comes with a nice provenance.
