Description:
AU Details 1793 Chain Cent
AMERICA Reverse, Sheldon-2
1793 1C Chain, AMERICA, S-2, B-2, High R.4--Corroded--ANACS. AU50 Details. With the exception of the extremely rare NC-1, Sheldon-2 is the scarcest Chain cent variety. It is identified by its widely spaced date and AMERICA reverse. The obverse die is shared with the famous AMERI cent, which suggests that S-2 is indeed only the second large cent variety coined.
This is a sharply defined example with only moderate wear on the hair near the ear. Both sides are mostly glossy medium brown, although the upper reverse border has glimpses of granularity, and approximately 40% of the obverse has lavender patina and peripheral flaking. Most of LIBERTY and the portrait are free from any corrosion. EAC 12.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
