Description

Near-Census 1793 S-10 Cent, AU55

1793 1C Wreath Cent, Vine and Bars AU55 PCGS. S-10, B-10, R.4. The obverse border at about 2 o'clock has a minor flaw in the beads that provides immediate identification of the variety. It is somewhat weakly detailed at the center reverse, with the letters in ONE CENT mushy and somewhat ill-defined. This piece has wonderful olive-brown surfaces with excellent sharpness of about AU50. The surfaces are pleasing, with only a few minuscule abrasions and a couple of pit marks that remain from the original planchet. Bill Noyes grades this piece VF35 with the sharpness of XF40, but it is clearly finer than that. Noyes lists the piece as tied for ninth finest known. Unlisted in Del Bland's Census, although we feel it would have ranked similarly in his roster. EAC 45.
Noyes photo number 34273. Ex: Tom Reynolds (1996 ANA).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 223J, PCGS# 1347)
