I picked this one up today for pretty well full market retail, $260.00 cash on barrel. Its strike then overall appearence I feel are noteworthy.Bust Half gurus can you share any info on this variety? this is not my series.
Its been awhile since a hit a decent cherry pick. I think PCGS got the "cleaned" right but coin looks textbook AU-50 to me?

@luv, maybe the rim bruise between two and three o'clock on the obv holds it back a bit?

Those are my thoughts those small ring ticks. Have looked at a few slider AU originals that my impression was they showed hairlines from cleaning but have also noted their are some fine excellent AU and low MS out there and they get pricey at MS60 real fast. The designation of cleaned on this one doesn't give me any buyers remorse whatsoever am glad I bumped into it and had the 260 in my pocket. Seller felt disappointed it came back cleaned and wanted out of it.
From what I gather the Reeded edge is the main attribution? Can't find any laymen term articles explaining the 23 listed varieties.

That is the most important thing!

Hopefully someone will be around in the next couple days to help out with assigning a specific variety to this.

I agree with the cleaned designation, but it has decent eye appeal otherwise. It is close between XF and AU, but I will have to go with around AU-50 details. The obverse looks very nice, but the reverse looks a bit more worn. I know the reeded edges don't have much of a rim on the reverse, and they were struck poorly.

I am studying the lettered edge halves, so I can't tell you much on varieties of the reeded edge halves. Even though they are the same series, they are very different types of coins.

Thanks was digging into the 23 designations for 1837 reeded and found a brief Heritage Auction description of GR-13. Heritage listed an AU GR-13 describing it as "Line through ED variety". I don't see much much except a faint line here and their running about. Nice series I have to start learning.

Just an FYI. It's not a cherrypick if it's already attributed. Unless, you are saying you got a higher grade coin than what it is graded.
