DESCRIPTION Top Pop Gem 1817 13 Stars Cent MS-66 BN (PCGS) CACHigh Condition Census for the N-6 Variety1817 Matron Head Cent. N-6. Rarity-1. 13 Stars. MS-66 BN (PCGS). CAC.
A magnificent Gem large cent suitable for a high end variety collection or type set. The surfaces are incredibly satiny and lustrous, remaining fully free of friction across the high points. Sharply struck and slightly drawn to 2 o'clock on each side. A beautiful medley of violet, sapphire-blue, chocolate-brown, and tangerine color accents the patina, which truly glows beneath a light source.
While we have offered a few Proof examples of the N-6 in recent years, including the Twin Leaf specimen which sold for $61,687, the present piece represents the finest circulation-strike we have handled in over a decade. At MS-66 BN (PCGS), it sits at the top of the Population Reports for both CAC and PCGS. A true find for the advanced collector, with superior eye appeal and surface quality. PCGS# 1594
