    1836 N-3 Cent, MS66 Brown
    Characteristic Obverse Rim Break

    1836 1C N-3, R.1, MS66 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A small obverse rim break over Star 6 is a hallmark of this Matron Head variety, found on all but the earliest die states. This basic design, employed from 1816 to 1839 with slight variations, was probably created by Mint Engraver Robert Scot, although might have been the work of assistant engraver John Reich. This nicely defined Premium Gem cent has sharp hair details and most star details with strong wreath venation. Fully lustrous surfaces display chestnut-brown patina with delicate sky-blue and steel overtones. Our EAC grade MS64.
    Ex: Oliver Jung Collection (American Numismatic Rarities, 7/2004), lot 10.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
