1793 S-16, B-19 Liberty Cap Cent, VG Details
1793 1C Liberty Cap -- Edge Damage -- NGC Details. VG.
S-16, B-19, R.6. Our EAC Grade Good 4. Ex: Mervis
Collection. This piece has the sharpness of VG8 with corroded steel
and olive-brown surfaces, showing an obverse edge cut at 12
o'clock. Other surface marks and verdigris are lost in the
corrosion. The surface quality prevents a determination of the die
state. This cent is unlisted in the Bland and Noyes census lists,
and ranks about 12th finest known per our EAC grade. The S-16 die
marriage is the second rarest Sheldon-numbered 1793 Liberty Cap
cent, behind the S-15, and slightly rarer than the S-12.
