Owner Comments:

1836- NGC AU58. Third Head, Breen-6510, McCloskey 3-C, R.2. The large 1 in the date, the 6 somewhat distant from the lowest hair curl, and the D in the denomination about halfway left under the stem tip diagnose this variety. Luster fills the recessed areas of this yellow-gold near-Mint State example. The design elements are well brought up, except for a bit of softness in the stars on the upper left border. A few light circulation marks are noted. The fields are much cleaner than average for this grade. Even so, it did not cross-over to PCGS at AU58.
