Description

Pleasing 1793 Chain Cent, Fine 12
Popular High R Variety, S-3

1793 Chain 1C AMERICA Fine 12 PCGS. S-3, B-4, Low R.3. The anomalous high R in LIBERTY is distinctive. The obverse displays rich chocolate-brown shadings with occasional slate-gray elements, while the reverse shows a more even balance between the two colors. The level of remaining detail is pleasing for the grade; aside from the 3 in the date, all peripheral elements are plain. The chain is similarly strong, with only one weak link at the upper left.
This attractive S-3 example, from the most available of the Chain cent varieties, should be of particular interest to type collectors. As an essentially problem-free representative of the place where "United States coin history starts," to quote Paul M. Green in his March 25, 2003 Item of the Week column for Numismatic News, it offers an attractive blend of eye appeal and history. MRB 10.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
