Description:
Choice AU 1793 Wreath Cent
1793 Wreath Cent--Lettered Edge--AU 55 PCGS. S-11c, R.3. This is one of the finest Wreath cents we have ever had the privilege to handle. The surfaces are medium-brown in color over both sides. The striking details are well defined in general with slight softness noted on the highest portion of the hair curls on the obverse, and some weakness on the words ONE CENT in the center of the reverse. The most (perhaps only) distraction on the surface are numerous tiny flan cracks that are generally concentrated on the lower portion of the obverse, the accumulation of these makes that side resemble a dried creek bed. Die clashed on each side also but most notably in front of the neck of Liberty on the obverse. Most easily identified for pedigree purposes by a tiny carbon spot which is attached to the lower side a denticle just above the upright of the R in LIBERTY on the obverse. Significant portions of original mint luster remain. From the "Peerless" Collection of high grade type coins. An outstanding Choice AU Wreath cent and tied for sixth finest known with five others.
