Description:
Choice AU 1793 AMERICA Chain Cent, Elusive Sheldon-2 Variety
1793 Chain 1C AMERICA AU55 PCGS. S-2, High R.4. This magnificently detailed Chain Cent has smooth walnut-brown surfaces. Wear is generally limited to the hair southwest of Liberty's ear. A trivial rim ding before 9 o'clock on the reverse is mentioned primarily to help identify future auction appearances of this impressive example.

Although Chain Cents were produced for only a few months in the year 1793, heavily circulated (and frequently corroded) pieces are always available for a price. However, bold examples with choice surfaces are very rare, and their appearance at auction is an event that gathers the specialists.

Five die varieties of 1793 Chain Cents exist, and four of these share a common reverse die, which has AMERICA on the left border instead of the abbreviation of Sheldon-1, AMERI. Among the four AMERICA reverses, Sheldon-2 is the rarest, aside from the non-collectible NC-1 variety. S-2 is promptly identified by its wide date, and LIBER is spaced much more closely than RTY.(#1341) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
