Fine 1793 Chain Cent1793 Chain 1C AMERICA Fine 12 PCGS. CAC. S-3, B-4, Low R.3. The Chain cent is the first issued type of U.S. coinage, and was struck for only a few months before its replacement by the Wreath design. Though all five Chain die varieties are collectible except for NC-1, Sheldon-3 is a bit more available than the others, and is attributed by a high, leaning R in AMERICA. The present example is toned medium tan-brown with lightly abraded and minutely granular surfaces. All legends are clear, with the base of the date and the T in UNITED slightly faint. Most Chain cents are well worn and/or corroded, and the current lot is decidedly above average for the type. Our EAC grade VG10.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
