    Condition Census 1801 Large Cent with 3 Errors, S-219, AU58 NGC

    1801 1C 3 Errors AU58 NGC. S-219, R.2. A popular Large Cent variety that has three significant engraver's errors showing on the reverse. The left wreath stem is absent, the U in UNITED was initially entered inverted, then hastily corrected, and the fraction is 1/000. The M in AMERICA is also noticeably repunched, a fourth error, but of lesser interest. This appears to be an early die state without the prominent die cracking usually seen at the lower portions of the reverse. The smooth, medium brown surfaces are essentially unabraded and well struck. Close examination reveals several microscopic pinpricks, but these hardly detract from this exceptionally well preserved, very pleasing specimen. For pedigree purposes, one is noted above Liberty's bow in the obverse field, three are seen to the right of the D of UNITED, and one more is under the IT of the same word. Certainly qualified as a Condition Census piece.
