THE “KEY” 1822 N-14

LOT 146 1822 N-14 R6+ Dominion Graded VG8 Obverse Scratch, Reverse Rim Bumps. Glossy light chocolate brown blending to medium chocolate in protected areas. The surfaces are smooth but there are some contact marks including two closely-spaced scratches on the cheek and a few rim bruises on the reverse: one at D, another at TA in STATES, and a very light one at F-A. The two scratches on the cheek are a distraction but the rim bruises are not. The date is bold and the legends are complete except for weakness in the center of the reverse. This variety was unknown to Newcomb. It was discovered in 1984 and since then 13 more have been found with the finest grading F12 by EAC standards and most grading Good or lower. The variety is easily identified as the only 1822 with the legend very close to the wreath, especially ME in AMERICA to the leaf below. This reverse was first used to strike the 1821 N-1 die variety and appears here in a later die state with a die crack across the lower reverse from the I in UNITED to the C in AMERICA. Apparently only a few were struck from this die pair before the 1821 reverse die was replaced and the 1822 N-8 strikes began. It would be reasonable to assume this was the first die variety struck with an 1822 date. The example offered here was the fifth one discovered. This is the rarest die variety in the Middle Date Cent series (1816-1839) with the exception of the Proof-Only 1834 N-7. A great opportunity for serious collectors of this series. Our grade is G6 net G4+. The attribution is noted on the Dominion Grading Service label (which is signed by EAC member James R. McGuigan as the grader-authenticator).
