    The Finest Known 1822 N-13 Cent

    1822 1C AU Details NCS. XF40 EAC. N-13, Early Die State, High R.5. The "Newcomb-13" die combination, so-listed as it was next in the sequence, was actually unknown to Howard Newcomb at the time of his large cent research. This variety was discovered only a few short years after the Newcomb reference was published; Willard Blaisdell was the first to identify an example in 1947. The Blaisdell discovery coin is now considered third finest known. Similarly, this example is a new discovery of the variety, having been previously unknown to the wide body of advanced large cent collectors. The sharpness of this cent is perhaps a tad nicer than the EAC grade, and it certainly has been cleaned and recolored. However, the surfaces are very pleasing with excellent color. The surfaces have medium steel-brown color with bright orange around the devices, this latter color resembling original mint luster. This is an early die state with bold and crisp dentilation. The obverse die crack through star 7 is visible down to Liberty's neck. NCS Improperly Cleaned.
