1793 S-9, B-12 Wreath Cent, MS64 Brown
1793 1C Wreath Cent, Vine and Bars MS64 Brown PCGS. CAC. S-9,
B-12, R.3. Our EAC Grade AU58. Faint rub on the high points of
the hair prevents a Mint State grade in our opinion, although Del
Bland and Bill Noyes suggest otherwise. This splendid cent exhibits
pleasing golden-brown and olive surfaces with a few darker splashes
on each side. The reverse has a splash of orange mint color.
Condition Census Example
Variety: Sheldon-9, Breen-12. Breen's Die State IV. The reverse cracks through R and IC are beginning to strengthen, and the obverse cracks on Liberty's neck, cheek, and temple are beginning to develop. This is an intermediate die state, with nine distinct die states recorded in Walter Breen's Encyclopedia of United States Large Cents.
Population Data (5/14): PCGS has certified 42 Mint State Wreath cents of all varieties, and among those are nine examples certified MS64 Brown, with 16 finer. At NGC the totals are 23 Mint State pieces with just five finer examples.
Heritage Commentary: Del Bland grades this piece MS61 and lists it as tied for third finest in his census. Noyes grades the coin MS62 and fourth finest. Our own EAC grade of AU58 keeps this lovely piece among the top dozen per Bland, or among the top eight per Noyes.

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).View More Testimonials
