1816 United States Matron Head Cent, N-4, R.2, VF+.

245.00

The second 1 in the date is low and leans left, and the 6 is high. OF is closer to A(MERICA) than it is to (STATE)S. This example is in a late die state with incomplete dentils and heavy flowlining in the reverse field. Both sides are glossy olive-brown with strong central detail. Friction occurs on the highest portions of the profile, hair curls, and wreath. There are few marks, and eye appeal is excellent for a lightly circulated first-year example. The Matron Head design replaced the Classic Head type in 1816 and would continue in use through 1835.
