    1826 N-4 Large Cent, MS64 Red and Brown
    From the Naftzger Collection

    1826 1C N-4, R.2, MS64 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Naftzger Collection. Considerable mint red remains on both sides of this impressive cent that ranks high in the Condition Census. The obverse has splashes of pale blue toning and the reverse has brighter mint red with a few small carbon spots that prevent a higher grade. Del Bland graded this cent MS63 and tied for the second finest known. Bill Noyes rated this piece as MS65 and tied for second finest known in his 1991 photo book. Our EAC grade MS63. Population for 1826 N-4: 1 in 64 Red and Brown, 0 finer (11/19).
    Ex: Elmer Sears; T. James Clarke; R.E. Naftzger, Jr. (Goldberg Coins, 2/2009), lot 172.
