1846 N3f 1846 N3f RARE die state

I called this a 40+/30 for the lt corrosion. This one is tied for CC11 of 12 known. Most examples are high grade I guess because the lower grade examples have the cuds worn off. The cuds are stronger than the pic shows.

1846 N19d 1846 N19d 1846 N19d very RARE die state

Grellman graded 45/30 LDS (d) harshly cleaned. Grellman told me it is tied for CC#1 but with a proper recoloring it would stand alone at CC1. I cherry picked this one on the EAC bourse this year 2007 in St Louis. I didnt get it cheap because the seller showed it as UNC! But I took it anyway. :) It has a strong obverse cud and was easy to recognize. It is a rare die state with only 8 known. **UPDATE** The coin has been recolored by Robert Dunfield...first pic is now...second pic is before. Should grade 45/40 now hopefully. I will send it to Grellman or his opinion. The coin is a little lighter than I would like but looks MUCH better than it did before. Thank you Robert!

1847 N7c

EAC Grellman graded 50/30 for micro corr and dark crud. I traded for this coin with Bill Simonson. I removed most of the dark crud but I still have some work to do. The grade assigned by Bob is quite harsh. This coin is a very cool looking coin. It almost looks stained...not corroded. It is the second stage of the cud progression on this variety with obverse cuds at star 1 and other extending to under date. It is slightly more common than the other cuds of the N7 with 17 known. Still quite rare!

EAC grade 40/30. Strong Obverse cud stars 9-10. 24 known.


1847 N13 with rev cud over R in AMERICA

This is a tough coin to grade. I would say it has XF45+ sharpness but it has obvious obverse graffiti. The carvings read "1850" in the right field and what looks like "MOTHER" and maybe "T&W" on the face and left field. The coin is fairly rare in this die state with 14 known counting this new find. Im going to call this one a 45+/20 which would put it at the least finest known at #14. Besides the carvings the coin looks very nice and has outstanding detail...especially the reverse cracks.

EAC grade MS60+. CC#2 for the die state with cud and CC 11 for the overall variety. This is a gorgeous coin that I couldnt pass up. I bought it from Tom Reynolds at the Missouri Numismatic show in June 2007.


1849 N11c

I graded this one 45/40 for a reverse scratch at "U" in UNITED. There are 21 known in this die state. This one should be ranked tied for CC#6. I have two 49n11c's. This is the finer of the two by a few points.


1849 N11b 1849 N11b CC#4

EAC grade VF30 net VF25 for the reverse carbon spots. The coin has a blunt strike so it is difficult to accurately determine the sharpness. This is only the 4th known with the reverse cud at the left tip of the ribbon to U in UNITED. It is CC4 of 4 known. The cud is strong in hand. Hard to get a good image. 11/10/10 Stephen Bryant


1849 N11c #2

Grellman graded this one 35/30+ for obverse spots. There are 21 known in this die state with the reverse rim break at "U" to the tip of ribbon. I picked this one up from Tom Reynolds at a show here in St Louis. This one should be ranked CC#13.

1851 N35a

EAC grade 45/25 which I think was a bit harsh. The coin has a light rev corrosion patch at A2 in AMERICA. It also has some abraided spots on the obverse which looks to have been verdigris. I would probably net it 5 pts higher than Bob did in the Goldberg 9/07 sale which is where I aquired it as Lot 2344. The picture in the catalog did not help the sale of this coin. I think it is a decent looking coin despite the problems. I think it is CC10 of 14 known.
