1803 Cent, AU53, S-265
Rare Large Date, Large Fraction
Ex: Newcomb Collection

1803 1C Large Date, Large Fraction AU53 NGC. S-265, B-23, R.4. The very scarce S-265 is the sole die variety for the Large Date, Large Fraction combination. A lightly circulated and pleasing deep mahogany-brown example. The key portion of the incomplete but lengthy pedigree listing for the present lot was compiled by Dr. Wallace Lee for its 2003 Superior auction appearance, where it was noted that "careful examination reveals a smoothed nick in the field over the bust tip and a repaired rim bruise under the 3." Our EAC grade VF20.
Ex: Howard R. Newcomb Collection, Part I (J.C. Morgenthau and Co., 2/1945), lot 453; Leon Hendrickson; Jonathan Kern; Tom Caldwell; Lillian Willins; Michael Kramer; Massachusetts Historical Society (Bowers & Merena, 11/1994), lot 2059; Michael Kramer; Orlando FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/1996), lot 5020; Dr. Wallace Lee Collection (Superior, 5/2003), lot 532; Illinois Numismatic Association Show, (9/2004); Drew St. John (A.N.R., 6/2005); Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 3/2006), lot 88, which realized $4,887.50.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 224G, PCGS# 1501)
