Very Fine 1793 Liberty Cap Cent, S-14
1793 1C Liberty Cap VF20 PCGS. S-14, B-17, Low R.5. Die State II. This Liberty Cap pairing is known as the Bisecting Crack variety for obvious reasons, as all known examples show that feature running from the center of the E in LIBERTY downward through Liberty's earlobe and to the right of the 3 in the date. The I in LIBERTY is high, and the B is below the E and R on either side. The shoulder loop is faint, as is the date although well discernible. On the reverse, which is shared with the S-13, S-16, and NC-6 varieties, a leaf triplet is directly beneath the O(F).
The Sheldon-14 is the second most common of the six 1793 Liberty Cap varieties, although at Low R.5 it is much more elusive than the S-13, at Low R.4. About 70 examples of the S-14 are estimated to exist, a population that has changed little since Dr. William Sheldon published Early American Cents (the forerunner of 1958's Penny Whimsy) in 1949.
This example has even chocolate-brown coloration, with little relevant contact on the obverse. Some small abrasions dot the center reverse, which is also somewhat weakly struck. The peripheral devices, border beads, and wreath are all pleasingly well detailed, however. In this die state, some clash marks are visible at Liberty's throat from the leaves on the reverse. This piece, while not in the Condition Census by any means, is likely about in the middle of the certified population for the type. EAC 12.
