1803 Cent, AU53, S-265
1803 1C Large Date, Large Fraction AU53 NGC. S-265, B-23,
R.4. The very scarce S-265 is the sole die variety for the
Large Date, Large Fraction combination. A lightly circulated and
pleasing deep mahogany-brown example. The key portion of the
incomplete but lengthy pedigree listing for the present lot was
compiled by Dr. Wallace Lee for its 2003 Superior auction
appearance, where it was noted that "careful examination reveals a
smoothed nick in the field over the bust tip and a repaired rim
bruise under the 3." Our EAC grade VF20.
