Exceptional PCGS AU55 "Leaning R" 1793 Chain Cent

1793 Chain 1C AMERICA AU55 PCGS. S-3, Low R.3. Die State III. More commonly known as the "Leaning R" variety, but also attributable by the straight line on the lowest part of the bust of Liberty. This later die state is characterized by die clash marks in front of Liberty's lips and the heavy clash marks below the truncation--both of which are from the reverse chain. This is an amazingly well preserved Chain cent that shows strong definition on the obverse as well as the reverse (which is invariably sharp when compared to the obverse). The coin displays even brown patina over each side with little or no variation in hue. The most prevalent defects (get out the magnifier) that account for the lower net grade are: a shallow diagonal scratch across Liberty's hair that is undoubtedly as old as the coin itself as it is the same color as the remainder of the coin, a short diagonal scratch in the lower right obverse field out from the truncation of the bust and of more recent vintage, and a tiny planchet void in the exergual area above the 7 in the date. An outstanding Chain cent and undoubtedly one of the finest known of the variety.
From The Melrose Bay Collection.(#1341)(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
