    1824 N-2 Cent, MS64 Red and Brown
    Rare Partially Red Example
    Probably the Finest Known N-2

    1824 1C N-2, R.2, MS64 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Noyes Die State B; this is the later die state, showing light flowlines towards the peripheries and fading dentils on the reverse, but lacking the faint die crack between star 9 and Liberty's hair. The surfaces are free of bothersome abrasions, save for slight deepening of the patina on Liberty's cheek. The fields show significant coppery-red luster penetrating subtle auburn-brown overtones. Several stars are weak, but the interior motifs are sharp. A few scattered specks do not detract. As a date, the 1824 large cent is elusive at the Mint State level. Pieces retaining enough original luster to grade in the Red and Brown or Red categories are rare. This is a highly important offering for the large cent specialist. Our EAC grade MS63. Population: 1 in 64 (1 in 64+) Red and Brown, 1 finer (8/16).
