1852 1C Braided Hair Cent, N-17 PCGS MS65RD Ex.Naftzger (called MS68 and CC#1 by Noyes)
Previously offered by Ira & Larry Goldberg Auctioneers in September of 2009, as lot #1128, the Naftzger catalog states "Repunched 1. Lustrous bright original mint red starting to fade to light steel brown on the highpoints, 85% of the mint color remaining. A truly beautiful cent, virtually flawless. A microscopic tick on the nose before the eye and a tiny planchet flake on the rim over star 9 are the best identifying marks, but they are difficult to find. Nicely struck LDS, die state c. The repunching under the base of the 1 is gone but the lump at the base of the crossbar of the E in ONE is clear. Many of the stars are drawn to the dentils from their outer tips. Called MS68 and CC#1 by 4 points in the Noyes census, his photo #30708. Our grade is MS66, tied for CC#1 in the Grellman census.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
This coin realized $6,613.
