Ryder 2b-A, the popular Redbook type with a horn-like diebreak on the Eagle’s head. Considered to be Rarity-3-.
And this is a bold, beautiful coin, with pleasing rich brown color, some 222 year-old mint red lingering in the devices and just a few light reverse lines keeping it from full gem status.
We’d venture to guess that there are not more than 5 or 6 truly unc. Horned Eagle Cents in existence, of which this is about as nice an example as can realistically be obtained.
