Description:
Pleasing 1796 S-119 Cent
1796 1C Draped Bust, Reverse of 1797 AU Details NCS. XF45 EAC. S-119, Die State III, R.3. This is the plate coin in the Breen Large Cent Encyclopedia. This is one of the Nichols Find varieties, and is actually seen less often in higher circulated grades than in mint state. Pleasing light brown with some golden highlights, and some areas of darker brown toning. The coin is unevenly struck with considerable weakness, exhibiting numerous original planchet marks where not struck up. There is very little actual wear, with the areas that are struck more sharply having characteristics of a nearly mint state coin. A very attractive copper for one that has been "improperly cleaned." This is a wonderful candidate for the date or type collector. Given the number of high grade coins from the Nichols Find, prices for the next tier of cents from this die combination have remained at a reasonable level. NCS Improperly Cleaned.
