    1820 N-7 Cent, MS64 Brown
    Second Finest Known

    1820 1C Small Date MS64 Brown NGC. N-7, R.2. Our EAC Grade MS60. Ex: Mervis Collection. A fine die crack from the lower bust joins star 1 on this middle die state piece. A lovely cent with olive-brown patina showing considerable mint red on both sides. A small stain is noted below the 20 in the date, and another on the lower part of the hair buns. A minor surface graze is noted between stars 5 and 6, preventing a higher grade. Noyes calls this piece AU55 and second finest known.
    Ex: Stack's (12/1993), lot 1149; Wes Rasmussen (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 3445; Dan Holmes (Goldberg Coins, 5/2010), lot 135.
