Description

Remarkable 1797 Cent, S-138, MS63 Brown
Reverse of 1797, Stems

1797 1C Reverse of 1797, Stems MS63 Brown PCGS. S-138, B-20, R.1. The left foot of the R in LIBERTY and the upper left corner of the second 7 in the date touch the bust. The reverse has an incomplete leaf to the left of the CE in CENT. This piece is Breen Die State VIII, the final-listed state with numerous spindly die cracks on the reverse.
This well-struck cent has pleasing mahogany-brown patina throughout both sides, with significant orange-red accents in the legends and around the wreath and portrait. Careful inspection beneath a lens locates only one abrasion of any interest, a thin mark to the left of the U in UNITED. Although S-138 is plentiful in circulated grades, the variety was absent from the Nichols find and is very rare in Mint State. MRB 50.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2242, PCGS# 1422)
