Goldberg Auctioneers / June Pre Long Beach 2018 (#104) - 10/06/2018 / Large Cents - Draped Bust Cents / Lot 256
1796 S-109 R3 Draped Bust VF30 Ten points sharper but covered with uniform extremely faint granularity that is well hidden under the glossy dark olive brown and steel toning. There are traces of crud in some of the protected areas but no notable marks. A very shallow planchet flake on the jawline is the best identifying mark (as struck). MDS, Breen state III. Graded by Del Bland and tied for CC#2 honors in the Bland/Breen census. Noyes says and tied for CC#6 in his census. Either way this is an important example of the die variety.
