Description

Affordable VF Details 1793 AMERI. Chain Cent

1793 Chain 1C AMERI.--Corroded, Damaged--ANACS. VF Details, Net VG8. S-1, R.4. The upper obverse has a relatively deep horizontal cut, and a much less significant scratch is found behind the lower hair tresses. The obverse rim has a minor bruise at 8 o'clock, and the medium brown surfaces are lightly granular, as is so often the case with these early Large Cents. All legends are crisp, and many fine hair details are present. An affordable example of this coveted rarity, the first Large Cent variety issued and the only die marriage with the AMERI. reverse. Apparently, the engraver laid out AMERICA last, and realized that the legend would appear unbalanced unless the nation's name was abbreviated.
From the Morris Geiger Collection.(#1340) (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 223G, PCGS# 1340)

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
