Description:

1829 N-2 Large Cent, MS62 Brown
Late Die State
1829 1C Large Letters MS62 Brown PCGS. N-2, R.2. MRB MS60+. A die crack joins the inner points of stars 1 to 4 as always, and another joins the outer points of stars 11 to 13, seen on later die states. Faded reverse dentilation confirms the later die state. The 1829 N-2 is considered the most common variety of the date, just edging out N-6 and N-8 for that honor, although John Wright suggests that the N-6 is seen more frequently in high grades. Mint State 1829 large cents are elusive, with only about 50 to 60 such coins known for all die varieties. Bill Noyes records a total of 48 MS60 or finer 1829 large cents in his 2005 Census book.
Slight peripheral weakness is noted through a few stars, with a bold obverse border and weaker reverse border. The chestnut-brown surfaces have excellent cartwheel luster with mint frost especially evident on the reverse. Faint bluish overtones are visible with hints of lighter tan, faded from mint red. This piece is unlisted in the 2005 Noyes census.
A former Early American Coppers sale cataloger, William C. Noyes lives in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and works full-time in the numismatic field, dividing his interests between early coppers and world coins. He began collecting in 1952 at age 8 and joined the ANA when he was 11. He is a 38-year member of Early American Coppers and is known for his numismatic photography, having photographed more than 25,000 coins.
Ex: Anthony Terranova; Dr. Robert J. Shalowitz (4/23/1989); Jon Alan Boka.
From The Al Boka Copperheads Collection.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 225K, PCGS# 1663)
