Description

    1803 Cent, AU53, S-265
    Rare Large Date, Large Fraction
    Ex: Newcomb Collection

    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.
