1801 1C Three Errors. AU53 PCGS. S-219, B-11, R.2. Bland XF40; tied for CC-9. Noyes VF30; CC-11. Photo #31659. Our EAC Grade VF30.

Equivalents.
Proskey 1; Doughty 156; McGirk 1A; Newcomb 6; EAC 9; Encyclopedia 1739; PCGS #1461.

Variety.
Pointed 1, 8 low and leans right. Three Errors. The obverse appears on S-219, S-220, NC-2, and NC-5. The reverse appears on S-218 and S-219.

Surfaces.
A splendid piece with bright golden-brown and deeper medium brown surfaces. A small mark is visible just inside the obverse border at 9 o'clock, but otherwise the surfaces are smooth and free of abrasions.

Die State IV. Both sides have light clash marks, and the reverse has a single die crack through UNI.

Census. A single Mint State example and two AU's are followed by four XF's in Noyes' Census.

Commentary. The Three Errors reverse is immensely popular, due mostly to its listing in the standard guide books over many years, and its immediate identification. The Husak specimen has the oldest pedigree of any S-219, dating back to 1891, although the Three Errors was actually known to Frossard in 1879, although he gave it two distinct listings: "1. Legend on reverse: IINITED STATES OF AMERICA. 2. The same, with one stem to wreath."

Provenance. F.W. Lincoln (1891); B.H. Collins (1896); Hiram Deats; M.H. Bolender (11/1940), lot 655, $26; James Kelly (10/1954), lot 738, $187.50; later, Heritage (10/1990), lot 455, $3,190; Douglas Bird; Paul Norris (Superior, 5/1992), lot 466, $7,150; Henry Hettger; Superior (2/2001), lot 2242, $6,900.

Personality. A Virginia collector and EAC member since 1985, Henry Hettger has contributed numerous informative and fascinating articles to Penny-Wise and The Numismatist. A sample from the latter publication, "Famed Varieties of U.S. Large Cents in the Smithsonian Collection," was printed in the June 1987 issue. (Variety PCGS# 36272, Base PCGS# 1461)
