1816 N-3 Cent, AU Details
Eighth Finest Known

1816 1C -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. N-3, R.4. Our EAC grade XF40. Ex: Mervis Collection. The N-3 cent is an intermediate state of the obverse with the rim break less advanced than on N-2, confirming the emission sequence of N-1, N-3, and N-2. The reverse die of N-3, also appearing on N-9, is misaligned on all examples of this variety with an outer border visible over UNITED. This splendid mahogany and olive-brown example has trivial handling marks on each side. Traces of frosty luster are evident on this pleasing cent. Bland and Noyes each call this XF40, and both rank the piece just outside their census.
Ex: Jonathan Kern; Chris Victor-McCawley; Manuel Ahumada (McCawley and Grellman, 6/1998), lot 144; later, Chris McCawley (4/22/2005); Daniel W. Holmes (Goldberg Coins, 5/2010), lot 7.
From The Adam Mervis Large Cent Collection.(Registry values: N491) (NGC ID# 224Z, PCGS# 1591)
