    Description

    1801 S-217, B-7 Cent, Good Details
    One of the Four Rarest Sheldon Numbers

    1801 1C -- Obverse Graffiti -- NGC Details. Good. S-217, B-7, R.6. Minor obverse and reverse die bulges are evident on this rarity. Only 16 or 17 examples of the S-217 are known in all grades, with just seven of those in grades better than VG. This is one of the important Sheldon numbers, missing from most collections. Other similar rarities include S-15, S-37, and S-79, the only three numbers missing from the Clover collection.
    The obverse has a large letter A scratched in the left field. LIBERTY is weak due to a die bulge, but all other letters and devices are fully present on this dark brown specimen. The reverse has a small rim nick over the E of UNITED. Our EAC grade Good 4.
    Ex: Kenneth W. Rendell (8/1957); Dorothy Paschal (1977); William R.T. Smith (2/1/1978); Jules Reiver (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 19492.
    From The Phillip Clover Collection of U.S. Large Cents. (NGC ID# 224B, Variety PCGS# 36248, Base PCGS# 1458)
