Description

1793 S-4, B-5 Periods Chain Cent, VG8
Last-Minted Chain Cent Variety

1793 Chain 1C Periods VG8 NGC. S-4, B-5, R.3. The last of the five Chain cent varieties was the Periods Obverse variety with punctuation following the date and LIBERTY. The entire 36,103-coin mintage of Chain cents was delivered from March 1-12, 1793, and the Periods coins were probably struck during the five-day period from March 8 to 12. Specifically correlating varieties and delivery dates is an interesting but likely impossible exercise.
Aside from a modest obverse rim bruise at 5 o'clock, this example has smooth, problem-free steel and tan surfaces with a "woodgrain" toning pattern. It is attractive and nicely detailed with a full date, motto, and legend. The chain is bold and complete. Previously certified VG10 PCGS. MRB Good 6.
From The Jack Stickel Collection.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 91341)

The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
