Terminal 1797 S-121b Cent1797 1C Reverse of 1795, Gripped Edge AU50 NGC. VF25 EAC. S-121b, Die State V, R.3. In his Large Cent Encyclopedia, Walter Breen enumerated five distinctly different edge types. Of those he discussed, only the Gripped edge is generally singled out, the others all grouped together as "Plain Edge." The Gripped Edge consists of irregularly spaced notches and raised dots or pellets on the edge. This is the latest die state known for this die marriage. This variety has the reverse design with single leaves at the end of each branch of the wreath. This design was first used in 1795, and is still called the "Reverse of '95" by most collectors. The Guide Book lists this as "Gripped Edge, '96 Rev." Regardless of its name, this is a splendid cent with glossy dark brown surfaces that exhibit only faint granularity on the reverse.
