    1800 S-191, B-2 Overdate Cent, AU Details
    Low Condition Census

    1800 1C Overdate, First Hair Style -- Burnished -- NGC Details. AU. S-191, B-2, R.3. Our EAC Grade XF40. Breen Die State IV. An intermediate state of the reverse cracks and bulges. Steel and dark olive surfaces are accompanied by traces of lighter gray-brown on the highpoints. Both sides have minor roughness with some verdigris on the reverse. The usual light handling marks and faint scratches are evident. This example is clearly a candidate for the traditional Condition Census, but it is not tied for the finest as recorded by Bland. It is probably a legitimate contender for fourth or fifth finest
