Going through a lot of coins I bought I found this 1847 Large Cent the date looks like the picture in The CherryPickers' Guide FS-LC-1847-302/Newcomb-43. I was wondering if anybody with EAC experience could tell me anything more about this coin. I already know it's not pretty, but it is what it is.










Thanks, Tom

The one in the CherryPickers' Guide is specifically the N-43 die pairing.

This obverse die with the repunched 1 is known to be paired with two reverse dies. The earlier die state, N-30, is more common than the later state and features a reverse with no significant die markers (that I know of). The later die state, N-43 is extremely rare, and has a reverse die with east-to-west die scratches through the NE in ONE, a scratch extending northwest form the T in UNITED to the rim, and two scratches extending northwest from the ER in AMERICA to the rim.

I can't tell if your coin has these die scratches because of the heavy damage. Closer pics would help though.

Here are some close-ups of the reverse diagnostic areas...doesn't look like the rare one to me, but I don't really know what to look for.

Looks like N-30 to me as well, just not seeing the reverse die scratches.

I have one of these as well: http://crdievarieties.com/doku.php?...8471csrpd006

PCGS is actually a pretty good reference for matching Newcomb varieties, they have full coin pics of most die pairings:
N-30: https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...-30-bn/37340
N-43: https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...43-bn/535644

Although, if I'm not mistaken, N-30 is still a fairly uncommon variety. It was given an R-4 rarity rating, although this rarity scale probably hasn't been updated in decades.

Thanks for the information and links Tanman. Great site, I added it to my bookmarks. I'll be referencing it during my furture searches. I bought a lot of coins from a dealer friend of my and I been getting a kick out of finding things listed in The CherryPickers Guide.
