    Howard Newcomb's 1807 S-276 Cent, MS63 Brown

    1807 1C Large Fraction MS63 Brown PCGS. S-276, B-6, R.1. As often encountered, the reverse of this example is rotated 180 degrees from normal alignment, giving it a medallic alignment. Although graded the same by PCGS, this example is clearly finer than the Husak specimen that sold for nearly $11,000 in February 2008. Despite being the most plentiful 1807 die variety, Sheldon-276 has a lower Census than some others of this date. In addition to its attractive appearance, with lustrous medium brown on the obverse and lighter brown on the reverse, it also has an important pedigree. Bill Noyes and Del Bland both agree with our grade of EAC 55.
