1836 N-3 Cent, MS66 Brown
1836 1C N-3, R.1, MS66 Brown PCGS. 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.
