Pretty glossy-brown patina envelops much of the reverse, but the obverse does reveal considerable remnants of faded-orange luster as the coin rotates under a light. Well struck over the major design elements, lack of detail is minor and confined to the denticles. Although the 1819 N-9 is a relatively plentiful Cent in Mint State thanks to the Randall Hoard, examples are seldom offered with the exceptionally strong eye appeal that this coin possesses.
