Description

1793 Chain AMERICA Cent, S-3, VF30

1793 Chain 1C AMERICA VF30 PCGS. S-3, B-4, Low R.3. The bust line is straight, and the R in LIBERTY is large, high, and leaning right. On the reverse AMERICA is spelled out in its entirety. The Sheldon-3 is the most common Chain cent variety, comprising perhaps half of all known examples of the Chain subtype. The charcoal-brown surfaces are a bit glossy, but free of active corrosion. A few shallow adjustment marks are observed on the right side of the obverse, but they are quite faint to the unaided eye. Overall, this example strikes the viewer as being evenly worn, with a few small blemishes that are insignificant for the grade. A nice midgrade example for a similarly graded date or variety set. EAC 20.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
