1805 S-268 Blunt 1
I found this coin locally - quite a miracle. This was a real "cherry" -
there are 3 varieties of 1805's, and this one by far is the scarcest.
It's a rarity 3 today; back when Sheldon came out it was considered a
rarity 5! By far my highest grade Draped Bust cent, too. The dealer
I purchased it from doesn't attribute his coins, so I was excited when I
looked at the reverse and realized it was a S-268. This is another of
1805 S-269 Pointed 1
This coin came out of a Heritage Internet auction, where it was slabbed in
an ANACS F12 holder. The online picture was awful, but the coin did not disappoint.
This variety is a bit tougher than S-267, even though they both are rated as Rarity-1.
