||1833 H10C MS67 NGC. CAC. V-7, LM-1, R.3. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This scarcer die pairing is most easily attributed by the high final 3 in the date on the obverse, and the small period on the reverse that is the same size as the dentils. This is an early die state as seen by the almost non-existent die cracking on the reverse. The only crack we see is from the lower right corner of the scroll to the top of the eagle's wing. The V-7, LM-1 is also a conditionally challenging variety. The LM reference states: "Examples above EF are difficult to locate." The finest piece cited in their 1998 reference was from a Bowers and Merena auction from 1991, an MS63. This example is undoubtedly the finest known for the variety, and it is tied with two dozen others as finest for the date. Each side is remarkably free from abrasions, and as expected from the coins from this landmark collection, both obverse and reverse are beautifully toned in shades of blue-gray and rose with powerful underlying mint luster. Census: 19 in 67 (3 in 67 S), 0 finer (10/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $1.75; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
