Description

1793 S-6, B-7 Cent, XF Details
Ex: Holmes Collection

1793 1C Wreath Cent, Vine and Bars -- Altered Surfaces -- PCGS Genuine. XF Details. S-6, B-7, R.3. The Sprung Die variety with an obverse bulge from the left border into the hair, but in this early state there is no evidence of a die crack that eventually follows the die bulge. At one time, this pleasing piece was graded AU50 PCGS, and more recently they declared surface alteration. We disagree with their opinion as did Bob Grellman who wrote in the Holmes catalog that the surfaces are smooth and choice, virtually flawless. Two small rim nicks at 9 o'clock on the obverse, and a thin diagonal blemish on the cheek, only slightly diminish the grade and importance of this exceptional Wreath cent. Our EAC grade VF35.
Ex: Stack's (1/2008), lot 8021 as AU50 PCGS; Chris Victor-McCawley; Daniel W. Holmes (Goldberg Coins, 9/2009), lot 10.
From The Wes Rasmussen Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 223J, PCGS# 1347)
