Description:
Historic 1793 Chain AMERI Cent
1793 Chain 1C AMERI. Good 6 PCGS. S-1, R.4. Despite a considerable amount of planchet roughness on the obverse, both the portrait and LIBERTY above are quite strong, with only the date being made effectively illegible. As always, the reverse has survived with noticeably sharper definition, especially in the center where the chain and denomination are appear in bold relief. The 1793 Chain AMERI. Cent was the first coin produced in the new Mint in Philadelphia. The word AMERICA was abbreviated to AMERI. on the reverse, and only this single variety was struck before being discontinued in favor of the Wreath design. Since there is only one variety with the abbreviated reverse, and since it is the first regular production coin struck in the Mint, Chain AMERI. Cents are not only of interest to large cent specialists and advanced type collectors, but also serious collectors in all facets of American history.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 223G, PCGS# 1340)
