LOT 337 1849 N-11 R1 Repunched 1 AU58. Lustrous light steel brown with a puff of slightly darker reddish steel brown toning in the field off the end of the nose. Looks mint state but there is a trace of rub on the very highest points of the devices. MDS, die state a, before any cud breaks on the reverse. The repunching under the right side of the 1 is clear. A shallow low spot covers much of the cheek and neck (caused by debris/lubricant on the die). Removed from an ANACS slab graded MS63BRN (ANACS label #364513 included).

LOT 340 1853 N-8 R3 EF40. Ten points sharper but there are two dark olive brown stain spots on the reverse: one at TE in UNITED and another at TA in STATES. Otherwise the toning is an attractive frosty light brown. The only contact mark is a small rim nick right of star 13. MDS, die state b, with flowlined fields.
