1852 1C Braided Hair Large Cent, Newcomb-17 PCGS MS65RD Ex.Naftzger Collection


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.

Ex Abe Kosoff 12/9/52:922.
Recently another specimen, an 1852 Cent Newcomb-8, realized $15,600 as a PCGS MS66 Red. It is quite a significant occurance when both Grellman and Noyes agree an example is the Finest Known (or tied for that honor) 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.
