Variety C-2

1804 C-2 R6. PCGS graded VF-30 Brown. CAC. Glossy chocolate brown. No roughness or verdigris, but there are quite a few small contact marks scattered over the obverse, especially on the left side. The best identifying mark is a disjointed nick from the lowest curl down to the rim below. EDS, Manley state 1.0, with the reverse rotated 30 degrees CW. Softly struck on the left edge of both sides, as usual on this variety, causing weakness at TED-ST, while everything else is properly impressed. The dies were out of proper axial alignment (the die faces were not perfectly parallel), and this condition was never corrected during the brief marriage that produced this variety. Our grade is F15+, net F15. Finest known of this very rare die variety. Plated in the Breen encyclopedia on page 230 to illustrate the variety (the large photos), and listed first in the condition census on page 231. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only example graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35143) Estimate Value $40,000 - UP Ex William K. Raymond (cherrypicked on the bourse of the 1971 ANA Convention)-R. Tettenhorst-EPNNES-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 04.2.2).

Price Realized: $120750
