1788 Massachusetts Cent, AU58
Scarce Period, W-6300 Variety

1788 1C Massachusetts Cent, Period AU58 NGC. Ryder 11-E, W-6300, Low R.4. The Massachusetts coins of 1787 and 1788 were the first to use the word CENT in the denomination. The W-6300 variety is identifiable by the shape of the arrow head forming an equilateral triangle on the obverse, and the location of the final S opposite the wingtip on the reverse. This variety is rare in grades above XF, and John Ford's example was a nice AU piece. The present coin is a delightful example, with just the slightest traces of wear showing on the medium brown surfaces. The surfaces show no areas of granularity, and all design elements are sharply defined. Listed on page 57 of the 2011 Guide Book. MRB AU55.
From The W. Philip Keller Collection of U.S. Colonials. (PCGS# 311)
