Condition Census 1803 S-263 Cent1803 1C Small Date, Small Fraction AU58 NGC. XF45 EAC. S-263, Die State VII, R.3. This is the terminal die state for this die marriage with the reverse die later used for the famous Large Date, Small Fraction type identified as S-264. (See the next lot.) Walter Breen has punch-linked this reverse to a die used in 1801, and suggested that this reverse die was made in the earlier year but not used at that time. Among surviving examples of this scarce variety, the present specimen is tied for sixth finest known, just making the Condition Census. The surfaces have pleasing olive and medium chocolate color with only a few small abrasions and scratches, including a few light scratches on Liberty's cheek.
