    Description

    PCGS 1839-C AU 55. Overdate. While of approximately the same rarity as the repunched date, the overdate usually commands a small premium. This piece was struck from the dies shipped May 3rd, and are distinguished by the repunched final S on the reverse. What appears to be an area of planchet flaking on the cheek of Liberty is actually a die defect left over from 1838. Like the repunched date above, this piece also is well defined in the centers and shows much deep reddish color. Very scarce above XF, in AU this issue rates as a mid R.7 with an estimated 8-9 pieces known. Lightly marked in the fields and on the devices with no mentionable abrasions, the fields show occasional patches of die striations which have, in turn, imparted a semi-prooflike sheen to the coin.
