Yancey of Earlycoppercoins, EAC #4647. 1840/18 N2 Braided Hair Large Cent, Large/Small 18, R2. Authenticated and graded by PCGS as VF30; more importantly, a MAJOR mint error, struck 60% off-center toward obverse K11.

As listed on the PCGS label, this is the 1840/18 overdate, and that feature is plainly visible to the naked eye. And thanks to the off-center strike, that cool 1840/18 date error is now nearly centered on the obverse, as if to spotlight that feature. Gorgeous, rainbow toning with lots of maroon, as seen in the final photo from PCGS Coinfacts. An incredible, dramatic, major mint error on the key Redbook variety for 1840! Please note that the details are much stronger in person than in my photos - my lighting seems to be washing out some of the details.
