    1848 N-2 Coronet Large Cent, MS67 Brown
    Glowing Surfaces, Faint Traces of Red Still Visible

    1848 1C MS67 Brown NGC. N-2, High R.1. Grellman Die State d, a late state with a number of fine reverse die cracks. This example with broadly repunched 18 on the obverse has richly luminous surfaces that are primarily blue-brown, though violet-rose elements are visible at the margins, particularly on the reverse, and a spot of truer "brown" within the E of CENT. In terms of the NGC Census Report, only a single MS67 Red and Brown example trumps this MS67 Brown coin, which is itself the sole coin certified at that level (6/12). Our EAC grade MS63.
