Description:
Famous AMERI. 1793 Chain Cent Sheldon-1
1793 Chain 1C AMERI.--Corroded--NCS VF Details. Ex: Rasmussen. S-1, R.4. First design for the large cent and the only variety with the famous AMERI. reverse, making it a very popular coin for copper specialists and for general U.S. type collectors alike. This is a pleasing coin for the grade that shows only a few pinscratches on the obverse, one traversing the center of that side, and all nicely blended with the color so that they are nearly invisible. There is also a small rim bump below the 3 in the date. The reverse is much finer, as always, with only a few small abrasions and bumps. There are only a few surviving Chain AMERI cents without problems. The current rarity ratings suggest that between 150 and 200 of these Sheldon-1 cents survive today. Breen speculates that some 6,350 pieces were struck; most are found in lower grades and with more problems than seen here. This is a more than acceptable coin with nice detail.
Ex: Superior (5/27/91), lot 21; Denis W. Loring (10/91); Wes Rasmussen Collection (Heritage, 1/05), lot 3001.(#1340) (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 223G, PCGS# 1340)
