Description:
Sharp 1793 Lettered Edge Wreath Cent
1793 1C Wreath Cent--Lettered Edge--XF45 NGC. S.11b or c, R.3. The grading service has identified this as a lettered edge Wreath cent, although did not specify which edge type. Sheldon-11b has two leaves incorporated into the edge device, while Sheldon-11c only has a single leaf. As these were given separate sub-variety designations by Dr. Sheldon, we feel that the grading services (and not just NGC) should all routinely make a note of the specific edge device. There are only two ways to make this determination, and one of these is simply to take the coin out of the holder. The other possibility is to plate match this example utilizing the edge marks at 2 o'clock to 3 o'clock on the obverse, as well as the minor lamination in the right obverse field. This is a pleasing medium brown Wreath cent, despite these few minor imperfections. The strike is strong but was not perfectly centered, thus the border beads at the disappear off the edge of the planchet; however, this is not quite far enough off-center to qualify as a mint error. (#1350) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 223J, PCGS# 1350)
