    Description

    Excellent Quality 1822 N-13 Cent

    1822 1C VF20 NGC. Fine 12 EAC. N-13, Early Die State, High R.5. A similar die state to the other N-13 in this sale, but this coin is worn just enough so that the obverse die crack is nearly invisible. This example is tied for eighth finest known of about 40 examples. At the time this coin was offered in the Floyd Starr catalog, it was described as third finest of just over a dozen known coins. An excellent lower-valued alternative to the finest known example of this variety, also offered in this sale. Dark olive and steel surfaces are quite choice, save for a thin vertical scratch from star 13 up to the protruding hair lock behind Liberty's neck. Several insignificant imperfections are present at the center of the reverse.
