Ron Guth:

The 1817 Newcomb 13 Large Cent is a common variety in all grades including Mint State. Large Cent expert, John Wright, estimates that there may be as many as "hundreds" of Mint State examples in existence today. Based on that expansive population, Wright believes this variety may have been included in the Randall Hoard, famous as the source of many Uncirculated Middle Date Large Cents. Wright calls this variety the "Lazy C" because the C of CENT is rotated far to the right relative to the E.

Early states of this variety have full denticles and sharp stars. As the dies wore, the denticles become mushy and indistinct, and the outer points of the stars began to stretch out toward the border. Most Mint State examples are Brown, with perhaps a small amount of original red color. Red and Brown examples are decidedly scarce and there are no full Red examples known. The finest example is the PCGS MS66BN from the D. Brent Pogue Collection.
