    1788 Massachusetts Cent, MS62 Brown
    Ryder 11-C, 'Slim Indian'
    The Finest Known

    1788 1C Massachusetts Cent, Period, Ryder 11-C, W-6290, R.5, MS62 Brown NGC. Ex: Elder. The Indian appears slightly lankier than on other obverses attributed to Jacob Perkins. This variety is rare in all grades, and is particularly difficult to find finer than VF. This high Condition Census coin, in our opinion the finest known, is unique in Mint State, and is an important opportunity for the advanced specialist. Both sides display smooth auburn-brown color, and pleasing central definition. Some minor rim imperfections are as struck.
    Ex: Thomas Elder's 35th Sale (11/1909), lot 64; John J. Ford, Jr. Collection (Stack's, 10/2004), lot 141; Jon Hanson; Donald Groves Partrick.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B27, PCGS# 311)
