Lot Description
1842 1C Large Date MS65 Red PCGS. N-3, R.3. An extraordinary coin and a date that is very rarely available with full red color. In fact, only three other pieces have been certified by PCGS with red color, all of which are MS64 coins. That, of course, makes this the finest example certified. The striking details are crisp throughout, and radiantly lustrous surfaces are golden-orange. A few tiny carbon flecks are noted under magnification. An amazingly well preserved coin that should be of great interest to copper specialists. From The Joshua and Ally Walsh Collection of United States Cents.
