Description

1794 S-17a, B-1a Cent, Fine 12
Head of 1793, Edge of 1793

1794 1C Head of 1793 Fine 12 PCGS. S-17a, B-1a, Low R.5. Our EAC Grade VG7. 1793 Edge Device. Breen Die State I. A faint die bulge weakens the L in LIBERTY, but there are no apparent cracks or clash marks on either side. Mostly pleasing and smooth olive-brown surfaces exhibit a splash of steel patina on the portrait, and a few others on the reverse. Aside from a few modest rim bruises, the surfaces are exceptional for the grade. The usual subvariety for this die pair has the edge device of 1793 with the stem and point of the leaf pointing downward in relation to the letters. Rarity estimates suggest that 60 to 70 examples of this variety are known, and the present piece ranks in the top 20. Al Boka's 1794 census at 1794largecents.com records this coin in a tie for 20th place.

You gave me several alternatives and explained the pros and cons of each. I concluded that you were someone I could trust and that you would do a good job for me. And you sure did!
