1839N6obv1839N6rev

A Fine Large Cent but she acquired a few obverse scrapes and a rim bump at star 1 over the last 174 years, thus the net grade of VG8. This is a great example of the “Booby Head”, so called because the hair actually wraps around underneath the rear prominence of the shoulder. The broken stem on the outer berry at “TE(D)” is prominent, no line between “ONE” and “CENT”, and puckered lips of lady Liberty all designate this the N-6 variety. Own a Booby Head forĀ  $23
