    1801 S-219, B-11 Cent, AU53
    Three Errors Reverse

    1801 1C 3 Errors, S-219, B-11, R.2, AU53 PCGS. CAC. The engraver at the Philadelphia Mint in 1801 may have had a little too much rum while working on this reverse. The fraction is a meaningless 1/000, the left stem is missing, and the U in UNITED was first punched upside down and then corrected, giving the appearance of II. The reverse has a single die crack that curves from the fraction through the ribbon and UNI, returning to the rim over the left side of the adjacent T. We are unable to match this piece to any of the known Condition Census examples and submit that it easily ranks among the 10 finest known examples. Both sides exhibit chocolate and steel-brown surfaces with scattered surface marks that include an old scratch through the O and C of ONE CENT. Our EAC grade XF40. (NGC ID# 224C, Variety PCGS# 36272, Base PCGS# 1461)
