Description

Exceptional and Choice S-3 Chain Cent

1793 Chain 1C AMERICA XF40 NGC. VF20 EAC. S-3, Die State I, Low R.3. This is an early die state without any indication of clash marks near Liberty's face. The S-3 Chain cent is the most plentiful of all five die marriages for the design, an ideal choice for the date or type collector. Despite the relatively common nature of this variety, it is difficult to find in higher grades. Well defined for a Chain cent with especially strong definition on the reverse. The surfaces display an attractive blend of medium and dark brown color, and are smooth and natural. Surface imperfections are minimal for the grade with the only notable ones being a very shallow scratch from the nose of Liberty back into the cheek (just barely detectable without a glass), and a few tiny abrasions scattered over the obverse. A tiny rim bruise over E of UNITED on the reverse is almost invisible in the holder. An exceptional Chain cent.
Ex: Stack's (4/30/96), lot 282.(#1341) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
