Description:
Moderately Circulated 1793 Liberty Cap Cent
1793 1C Liberty Cap VF20 PCGS. S-13, High R.3. On this higher graded example it is easy to discern the inherent beauty of the design, engraving, and die cutting of the S-13 cent. This variety is the most plentiful of the '93 Caps and is an ideal choice for the collector seeking a single representative. Walter Breen estimated that at least 7,000 examples were struck, over half the entire mintage of 1793 Liberty Cap large cents. All 11,056 Liberty Cap cents were delivered from the coiner on September 18, 1793, just a week after designer Joseph Wright passed away. It is possible that Wright never actually saw an example of his new cent design before he succumbed to the annual yellow fever epidemic that swept Philadelphia in the fall of 1793.
The surfaces are deep brown and olive with underlying traces of reddish coloration apparent over the devices. Each side shows light porosity, scattered small planchet flakes, and several light scratches (apparent only with a magnifier). The only rim bumps we see are located on the reverse at 3 and 4 o'clock. This 1793 Cap cent is far finer than the typical '93 Liberty Cap cent surviving today. EAC 15.
