Exceptional S-9 Wreath Cent, AU55 PCGS, Ex: Jay, Halpern

1793 1C Wreath Cent--Vine and Bars--AU55 PCGS. S-9, R.2. The S-9 is an easily identifiable variety, with its large, round bow on the reverse, and the slightly curved stem that parallels the date on the obverse. This is an exceptionally pleasing example that is struck on a smooth, non-porous planchet. The color is a light steely-brown and is evenly balanced from one side to the other. The striking details are crisply defined and the beaded border is perfectly centered on both obverse and reverse. Identifiable by three small defects: the beads are missing because of a striking defect over AM in AMERICA, a small contact mark is located on the middle curl of Liberty's hair, and there is a tiny rim bump near 3 o'clock on the obverse rim. A splendid type coin for the advanced collector.
Ex: Charles Jay Collection (Stack's, 10/67), lot 90; to Herman Halpern; Halpern Collection of Large Cents (Stack's, 3/87), lot 104. (NGC ID# 223J, PCGS# 1347)
