Description

Famous 1793 Chain Cent, VG8
AMERICA, S-3, B-4

1793 Chain 1C AMERICA VG8 PCGS. S-3, B-4, Low R.3. Among the most iconic of the early American coinage types, the Chain cent may have been unpopular and quickly replaced in its time, but today it is well-respected and eagerly sought-after by type and series collectors alike. This is a glossy Very Good example with deep walnut-brown surfaces that lighten on the devices and at the rims. Both sides show scattered digs, but the long, thin line visible at the lower right reverse is a planchet flaw rather than a post-striking defect. The peripheral devices show understandable weakness from wear, but the central chain is strong. MRB Good 5.
From The Eagle Harbor Collection, Part Two.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
