Description

Well-Balanced VF30 1793 Chain Cent
S-3, 'Leaning R' Variety

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 leans right. On the reverse AMERICA is spelled out. 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 hairlines are observed on the right 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. MRB VF20.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
