Owner Comments:

WB-101, ex-Richmond collection. Coins like this tend to be forgotten in a collection with so many rarities. But in high grade the 1845 is a rarity in its own right. The services have graded only one MS-65 to go with five MS-64s. There is a die crack on the reverse circling up through the TAT of STATES to the rim, which may eventually account for the rim cud noted near the date by W&B. Bought at a Baltimore show from Joel Cherry of Mercury Numismatics.
