1828 N10 Coronet Large Cent, Small Wide Date, R1. This coin has been authenticated and graded by PCGS as MS62RB, and it was part of the "Twin Leaf Collection" auctioned by Stacks in March 2016, where it was described as: "Sold $3,995 LOT DESCRIPTION 1828 Matron Head Cent. N-10. Small Wide Date. Rarity-1. Noyes Die State-A/A. MS-62RB (PCGS). Generous faded rosy red copper is tamed by soft steel on the obverse motifs and to a lesser degree in the fields. One brick oxidation spot comes into view when the coin is turned in the light. The reverse exhibits generous faded mint red with olive brown highlights and scattered microscopic toning flecks in the fields. About as nicely struck as this variety comes. Good detail throughout the central motifs though only about half of the stars show their centers. Dentils are strong but narrow in places. The Twin Leaf Part I coin was graded two numeric points higher than this one, but had inferior color as it was mostly brown. Ranked as tied for sixth finest in the Noyes Census, it was certainly an important piece and it realized just shy of $10,000, a substantial sum that exceeded by more than $2,000 the result of the former Oscar Pearl coin, ranked CC#5, which sold in February 2013. The former Pearl coin also trended toward brown, albeit light and handsome. The present coin is ranked much lower than these two in the Noyes Census but it's called EF40 EAC, which is obviously an error in the listings. Del Bland called it MS62, while the Superior catalogers in October 2000 saw it as MS63, noting that the variety is "seldom seen with this much mint red." Without the spot, this coin is an EAC MS63 all day long, but we've elected to deduct one point for it. Still, it is an outstanding example of the variety and worthy of a fine cabinet of coppers. EAC:MS62 Noyes:34056 From the Twin Leaf Collection Provenance: From the Twin Leaf Collection of United States Large Cents, Part II. Earlier ex Bowers and Merena, March 1994:1170; Anthony Terranova; McCawley and Grellman, January 1995:484; Eric Morrison; Superior, October 2000:1344; Chris Victor McCawley. PCGS# 36908." I got this coin from Tom Reynolds at the St. Charles CoinX on 11/06/21, and this is the nicest example of this variety that I have handled. The "Newcomb 10 Small Wide Date" attribution and "Twin Leaf Collection" pedigree are each listed on the PCGS label. Without exception, my coins are much sharper and more attractive in person than in my photos, so if you like the photos, you will LOVE the coin!
