    Perfect Dies 1838 N-1 Cent

    1838 1C MS64 Brown NGC. N-1, Early Die State, R.1. The 1838 N-1 variety is one of the most common for this date, a year that includes many common varieties. As such, this is an excellent coin for the date or type collector to consider. The die state specialist will also want to give consideration to this example with its perfect obverse and reverse dies. The surfaces have lustrous olive-brown and golden-tan coloration with a small splash of steel toning at the C of CENT. Both sides have sharp central detail with some peripheral weakness, especially evident among the stars on the obverse. The rims are fully detailed.
    Ex: Stack's (6/82).(#1741) (Registry values: N991)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 225V, PCGS# 1741)

    Weight: 13.48 grams
