Description

1797 S-140, B-22 Cent, Fine 12
Double Struck and Partial Brockage

1797 1C Reverse of 1797, Stems -- Double Struck Reverse and Partial Brockage Obverse -- Fine 12 PCGS. S-140, B-22, R.1. Our EAC Grade VG8. The first strike was uncentered toward 12 o'clock on a slightly oversized and oval-shaped planchet. The second strike was uniface reverse and off center toward 7 o'clock, relative to the reverse. The second strike is partial, only a 20% impression from the reverse die, since a planchet (not included) rested at an angle over the present piece at the time of the second strike. Choice surfaces for the grade with pleasing steel brown color.

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
