1794 Cent, Doubled Edge Lettering1794 1C Head of 1795 -- Doubled Edge Lettering, Corrosion -- NGC Details. AG3. S-67, B-59, R.3. The earliest copper planchets produced at the Philadelphia Mint had edge devices that were imparted through use of a machine known as the Castaing Machine. Blank planchets were passed through two steel bars, one stationary, and the edge lettering or other design was sunk into the physical edge of the planchet. Mistakes occasionally happened, such as this piece with doubled edge letters. The doubled edge letters are boldly visible around the entire circumference of this piece and read ONEONE HUNHRNDRED FOR A A DODOARAR, according to the Superior catalog that includes a photo showing part of the doubled edge lettering. The obverse sharpness is Good with the date and LIBERTY complete, while the reverse sharpness is Fair. Our EAC grade Fair 2.
