Lot Description
1804 1C VF35 PCGS. S-266, R.2. Die State IV, large die breaks over RTY and MERIC. The sole die marriage of the date, and thus a key to a date collection of Large Cents, along with the 1799 and 1793. This richly detailed walnut-brown representative is nearly void of marks, and the surfaces offer only a hint of granularity. The dies are rotated such that the O in the date is aligned with the O in OF, long used as a diagnostic along with the prominent rim cuds, if the latter are present. The majority of 1804 Cents are in well worn or corroded condition, and cannot compete with this comparatively bold and smooth example. Population: 10 in 35, 12 finer (11/05).
