    1818 N-6 Large Cent, MS64 Brown
    A Census Level Cent

    1818 1C MS64 Brown PCGS. N-6, R.1. MRB MS60+. The reverse is always cracked from ED ST to the wreath and F AMERIC, positively identifying the N-6 die marriage. Dull lapping lines are evident at CA, apparently also as always on this variety.
    This specimen has a nice strike with full borders and sharp details, although a few stars are flat along the right obverse border. Both sides are fully lustrous with smooth, pristine surfaces that combine olive-brown and orange mint color with delicate bluish overtones. Noyes grades this piece MS60 and tied for fourth finest known.
    A third-generation pharmacist, Robert E. Matthews (1929-2000) of Brighton, Michigan, opened a coin shop in 1962, and during the course of business formed a remarkable collection of large cents, sold through Superior Galleries in May 1989.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
