Description:
Attractive 1801 S-224 Large Cent
1801 1C XF45 PCGS. S-224, B-13, R.1. Noyes VF30; tied for CC-8. Photo #39172. Our EAC Grade VF25.

Equivalents.
Proskey 8; Doughty 163; McGirk 3E; Newcomb 12; EAC 12; Encyclopedia 1741; PCGS #1458.

Variety.
LIB close, E low. Denominator has 10 distant, 00 close. The obverse appears on S-224. The reverse appears on S-224.

Surfaces.
Chocolate-brown with lighter chestnut color around the devices, and pale gray-brown highpoint toning on each side. A few small marks on the obverse include a field dent near the throat, others along the upper bustline, and a minor scrape on the neck. The reverse has a small patch of corrosion at the upper right leaf and the final S.

Die State I.
Both sides have minor clash marks at the usual locations.

Census.
The Condition Census of S-224 is surprisingly low, considering it is the most common die variety of the year. Bland grades the best coins 55-55-50-45-40 (4), and Noyes calls them 60-55-50-50-40-35-35-30 (5).

Commentary.
In Penny Whimsy, Sheldon recorded a Census of 65-60-50-45-40-35, and wrote: "Far the commonest 1801, yet one of the rare ones near Mint State. Both of the full Mint State coins now known are new discoveries since EAC was written. One came from the Ryder collection, one from the Brand hoard." Today, Bland grades both of those coins AU55.

Provenance. We have not determined the past provenance of this specimen. There was no provenance provided to us, and none is recorded by Noyes. (Variety PCGS# 36254, Base PCGS# 1458)
