Description

Scarce MS65 Brown S-135, B-5 1797 Cent
Reverse of 1797 With Stems

1797 1C Reverse of 1797, Stems MS65 Brown PCGS Secure. S-135, B-5, R.3. A scarce die pair, the reverse (L) unique and distinguished by a line off a leaf and toward the space between the RI of AMERICA, the obverse shared only with the excessively rare NC-6 variant. Though NGC has chosen to call this coin "Brown," and that color designation is technically correct, there is great variety in the shades: mahogany border tones yield to a violet-laced medium-brown through the broad interiors. The surface luster is glossy, a remarkable state for a copper coin more than two centuries old, and the only carbon spot warranting individual mention appears at the denticles above the second T in STATES. Whether novice or specialist, almost any copper enthusiast can appreciate the qualities of this coin. MRB MS62.
From The Marilou Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2242, PCGS# 1422)
