1803 1C Small Date, Sm Frac Draped Bust Cent PCGS AU58+BN (CAC)
WOW. Soft tan and light brown fields actually exhibit faded mint red in the lower, protected areas and around the lettering. The luster is sublime and the strike is superb. There is a patch of darker toning on the reverse which is NOT corrosion of any kind, but, rather a stain of toning that is darker than the rest of the coin. Of the 8 AU-58+ graded pieces at PCGS, it is hard to ascertain how many have received a CAC designation. There are 10 total AU-58 and AU-58+ graded coins that have received a CAC sticker. This coin is certainly worthy of the sticker. Truly exceptional and a prize for an Everyman Registry collection.
