Description

Choice Red 1839 Booby Head Cent, N-13

1839 1C Booby Head MS64 Red PCGS. N-13, R.2. The southern point of star 12 is recut, and the upper left reverse has spindly die cracks. The Booby Head design is the prevalent of 1839, encompassing Newcomb varieties 5 through 15 except for N-8 and N-9.
This is a beautiful Choice cent that has vibrant luster and light gold surfaces. Even close examination beneath a loupe fails to locate relevant marks. The cheek is pristine, and carbon is trivial aside from a distant fleck on the reverse rim at 1:30. All stars show clear radials, and the portrait and wreath are fully brought up. An outstanding Booby Head that would highlight a collection of middle date large cents. EAC 64. Population: 2 in 64 Red, 0 finer (5/08).
From the Joshua Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 225Z, PCGS# 1753)
