1847 1C Braided Hair Cent, N-10 PCGS MS65RB Ex.Naftzger (CC#1 by Grellman & Noyes)


Previously offered by Ira & Larry Goldberg Auctioneers in September of 2009, as lot #765, the Naftzger catalog states "Frosty original mint red mellowing to light olive and steel on the highpoints, 75% of the slightly faded red showing on both sides. Just a few specks of darker steel toning scattered over both sides from flawless, and the largest of these is on the curl at the forehead. A gem cent that offers fabulous eye appeal. MDS, the usual die state with clear die lines and points behind ONE CENT. Called MS67 and CC#1 by 4 points in the Noyes census, his photo #31556. Our grade is MS65, CC#1 in the Grellman census.

Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
Ex Myles Z. Gerson-Denis Loring-Ken Goldman 7/24/80.
This coin realized $5,750 in 2009. It is quite a significant occurance when both Grellman and Noyes agree an example is the Finest Known and number 1 in their Census as they do with this coin. This specimen remains in it's original holder when it was sold in 2009. It is entirely possible it is a higher grade today.
