Description

1793 S-11b, B-16b Wreath Cent, VF Details
Lettered Edge, Two Leaves

1793 1C Wreath, Lettered Edge -- Whizzed -- NGC Details. VF. S-11b, B-16b, R.4. Our EAC Grade VG7. Ex: Mervis Collection. Pleasing olive and steel-brown surfaces exhibit light granularity across both sides. However, despite the NGC disclaimer, we see no evidence that metal has been mechanically moved as the term Whizzed suggests. This is a thoroughly pleasing example that has likely been cleaned long ago, and since has retoned to an attractive and natural appearance. Breen Die State II, with light clash marks primarily visible below Liberty's chin.
From The Adam Mervis Large Cent Collection. (Variety PCGS# 35474, Base PCGS# 1350)
