Description:
Important MS63 Brown Ryder 12-M
With Period 1788 Massachusetts Cent
Ex: Ford, Boyd, Ryder
1788 1C Massachusetts Cent, Period MS63 Brown PCGS. Ryder 12-M, Low R.4. 150.6 gn, per its Ford auction appearance, where it was cataloged as "The finest seen of a variety described as unknown in Uncirculated condition." This well struck cent is predominantly chocolate-brown, although wisps of gray patina are present on the right obverse field and across an upper left portion of the shield. Marks are surprisingly absent, and the few pinpoint flecks and a subtle spot on the shield are of little account. Listed on page 57 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 11 in 63 Brown, 4 finer (8/06).
Ex: George M. Parsons Collection (Henry Chapman, 6/1914), lot 120; Hillyer Ryder; F.C.C. Boyd; John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part V (Stack's, 10/2004), lot 147; Troy Wiseman Collection, Part Two (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 119, which realized $9,775.
From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three. (PCGS# 311)
