Need help with variety on a 1830 large cent.

I cannot find any pics or descriptions with the different varieties known.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for first loving us.

    Based on the descriptions in the Newcomb book it is N1/A1. I always start by looking at the 10th berry, which is the one by the A and M in America. But I am not an expert.

    Always trying to learn more

    Not a series I know but looking at the forum Resources thread there is a link to a NNP book for 1816 - 1839 large cents.
    It looks like 1830 starts on page 177. Any good?
    There are also 3 updates listed 1825, 1839 and errata that I did not look at.

    @uscoinguy I concur...N1A1...I always look for obvious die cracks...the one" from the rim near the first star through second to rim over third star" is a perfect match.

    Thank you all for your responses and reference material! I am looking at buying this book right now but looking for the latest publication.

    If you can’t find Newcomb, the Noyes book is pretty good:

    @Walkerguy21D I like all the markers Noyes points out. Newcomb is much more difficult to decipher. I am going to have to pony up the $275 Wizard Coin Supply wants for the 2 Late date books. The Newman Numismatic Portal has the latest Grellman book but Noyes is not available. Plus I have a plate coin from Noyes in my set.
