The Kuntz-Frankenfield S-15, Third Finest Known
1793 1C Liberty Cap Fine Details NCS. VG8 EAC. S-15, Low R.7. Only 12 pieces are known of this rarity, the finest in the ANS, and most have significant defects. This piece is slightly sharper than the stated grade but, as expected, there are several abrasions, rim nicks, and planchet voids on each side. The planchet quality is actually quite pleasing overall, requiring close examination to see the microscopic roughness on the obverse. The date is clear as are the other legends except, of course, ONE CENT, which is non-existent because of the swelling always seen in the central reverse. Sheldon waxed poetic about this variety, calling it, "The aristocrat of the Liberty Cap cents, and therefore an aristocrat of aristocrats among the Large cents." See also the 1793 S-12 above, for a similar title by Dr. Sheldon. Tied for third finest known. NCS Damaged.
Ex: Jeff Bender (Stack's, 6/60), lot 12; Dorothy Nelson (Stack's, 2/76), lot 10; William R.T. Smith; Dr. Edward R. Bush (4/79); G. Lee Kuntz (Superior, 10/6/91), lot 18; J.R. Frankenfield (Superior, 1/17/01), lot 206 $41,400.(#1359) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 223L, PCGS# 1359)
