Description:
Mid-Grade 1793 Chain Cent, VF20
S-4, 'Periods' Variety
1793 Chain 1C Periods VF20 PCGS. CAC. S-4, B-5, High R.3. The periods on the obverse, following both the date and LIBERTY, are the hallmark of this die and they are both clearly visible. Possibly engraved by Joseph Wright, as the design has a slightly different treatment and the periods are reminiscent of his 1792 pattern quarter where this device was also employed. The deep brown surfaces reflect an unusually sharp strike for this often-weak issue. Several moderate-sized marks are seen on the obverse, the most prominent of which are at the center of that side. A couple of small rim bumps are also noted at the 5 to 6 o'clock positions on the obverse. Still, a pleasing, mid-grade example of America's first one cent issue. MRB VG8. Population: 4 in 20, 16 finer (9/06).(Registry values: P5) (PCGS# 91341)
