Attractive Chain Cent With Periods
1793 Chain 1C Periods VG8 NGC. VG10 EAC. S-4, Die State III, High R.3. This is a late die state with a tiny chip in the obverse die at the lower left, where two cracks join the border. In a letter to Mark Borckardt quoted in the Breen Large Cent Encyclopedia, Harry Salyards explained his opinion that the Periods die variety may have been executed by Joseph Wright as "the treatment of the hair at the brow and temple is more like that on several of the Wreath cent dies than either the strange receding hairlines of the other Chain cents, or Wright's 'boundary wave' on the Liberty Caps." Probably more than 8,800 pieces were struck of this variety from the March 8-12 deliveries, according to Walter Breen's research. The obverse shows three shallow, curved scratches from behind Liberty's nose down almost to the rim below. Also, there is a long, angling mark in the exergual area above the date, and a couple of minor planchet flaws in the right obverse field. The reverse has a slight streaky granularity that is barely noticeable to the unaided eye. Medium brown coloration over each side.
