Description:
1793 S-4, B-5 Cent, AU50
Periods Obverse
Near Census Level
1793 Chain 1C Periods AU50 PCGS. S-4, B-5, R.3. Ex: Husak. A late die state, Breen Die State III, this piece has a small rim break where two obverse cracks meet the border at 7 o'clock. Another delicate crack joins the letters BERTY to the period, extending into the right obverse field past 2 o'clock.
The pleasing surfaces of this lovely piece display mottled dark brown and golden-olive color. The obverse has a nearly invisible hairline in the lower right field. Only faint evidence of porosity is noted on the reverse. It is sharply struck with excellent details on the portrait and the chain, standing boldly against the field. The date and all of the obverse and reverse lettering are complete and fully outlined with a raised border.
Del Bland conservatively grades this piece EF40 and tied for seventh finest of the S-4 cents, while Bill Noyes suggests VF35 and tied for eight finest known. In our opinion, this cent should grade XF45, equal to the fourth best in the Bland census, likewise equal to the forth finest in the Noyes census. Our EAC grade XF45.
