    1796 NC-5

    The 2012 EAC Convention Sale

    Highlight: Newly Discovered 1796 NC-5 123. 1796 NC-5 R7 FR2. As I write this description, there are NINE examples recorded in my Noyes Numistudy condition census. This example is not recorded, and it would be tied at CC9-10 with another FR2. VG10 details, but evenly porous, slightly bent, and the 6 in the date has been gouged out. Medium brown color with all reverse details still legible. On the plus side, easily attributable thanks to the unique die cracks through the 9 and 6, which are still clear. Don't hate the defects - they might just make this tough R7 NC “affordable ! 16
