Description: 1828 N-5 R2 PCGS graded MS61 Brown, CAC Approved. Nice glossy light to medium brown with frosty flowline luster covering the fields. A tiny spot of darker olive toning above star 3 and some flattened dentils over ER in AMERICA are the notable marks, and they are not distracting. MDS with a fine die crack through the tops of TED and obvious dishing at the dentil tips on the reverse. Called AU55 net AU50 and tied for CC#8 in the Noyes census, his photo #37243. Our grade is AU50. A sharply struck, very attractive cent for the grade with mint state eye appeal. The attribution and Fricke provenance are noted on the PCGS label.
