1804 C-7 Spiked Chin R4. PCGS graded MS-63 Brown. Glossy steel brown with frosty light brown toning in protected areas, especially on the reverse. Excellent luster and eye appeal. The only mark is a vertical nick-like planchet chip on the cheek right of the curl, as struck. MDS, Manley state 4.0. The reverse die cracks through the top of the legend are clear but the cud break at OF-A has not formed. The reverse fields are slightly prooflike thanks to a fresh die lapping. A sharp, very attractive example. Our grade is AU55. Possibly the finest known, certainly one of the top two. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only MS graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35164) Estimate Value $25,000 - UP Ex Darwin B. Palmer 4/2002 (during the 2002 EAC Convention)-R. Tettenhorst-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 04.7.11).
Price Realized: $44850
