    1826/5 Cent, MS64 Brown
    Popular N-8 Overdate

    1826/5 1C N-8, R.2, MS64 Brown NGC. This sole overdated 1826 variety commands a large premium in Uncirculated grades with its own listing in the Guide Book. The 2 and the 6 in the date are much closer together than the other digits, and the remnants of an underdigit 5 exists within the top curve of the 6. The surfaces of this near-Gem example are visually pleasing with reddish-chocolate coloration and subtle mint luster beneath the toning.

    While the strike is sharp overall, some peripheral weakness exists -- most noticeably at the centers of stars 2 through 4 and at the opposing legend, where the denticles fade. The obverse is slightly off-center toward 7 o'clock. Finely textured surfaces show only a few tiny marks of any kind. An attractive and example the overdate, always in demand. Our EAC grade AU50. (NGC ID# 225G, Variety PCGS# 36835, Base PCGS# 1648)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
