Description:
1823/2 N-1 Large Cent, AU53
Key Date of the Newcomb Series
1823/2 1C Overdate AU53 PCGS. N-1, Low R.2. MRB XF40. This late die state example has dentils fused below the date and others fused from stars 1 to 3. The rest of the obverse border and the reverse border remain crisp. The key date of the Newcomb series, the 1823 is known in two versions, the overdate and the normal date. Examples of either variety are difficult to locate in any grade, and those in grades better than VF are quite rare. John Wright remarks: "A true no-problem XF 1823 is really hard to locate at any price." In addition to two die varieties, a so-called "Restrike" also exists in copper and silver, combining a late die state of the N-2 obverse with the reverse of 1813 S-293. The restrikes were most likely produced in the mid- to late 1860s or early 1870s.
Light wear is evident on the high points with trivial surface marks on each side, including a few small neck nicks. The surfaces exhibit tan, deep mahogany, and steel-blue patina. Graded XF40 in the Superior catalog, although Noyes says VF30 in his 2005 Census book.
The author of the award-winning The Cent Book 1816-1839, John D. Wright bought his first large cent in 1954 and continued to form an extensive collection of large cent varieties and die states. His collection was dispersed privately in 2006. Wright served as the Early American Coppers national treasurer for over three decades, and his wife, Mabel Ann, served as librarian for EAC. In 1973 he enrolled this cataloger in EAC.
