Description

Possible Census Level 1798 S-174 Cent, AU58

1798 1C Second Hair Style AU58 PCGS. S-174, R.2. Die State IV, with heavy reverse clash marks, as almost always in this die marriage. Traces of a short radial crack are evident on the obverse at about 7:30, and heavy die chips below the hair ribbon are left over from an earlier die state. Both dies were reground on at least two occasions, if not more.
This splendid cent is likely a high Condition Census piece, although we have been unable to match it to a specific known piece. Del Bland records three AU55 coins and four AU50 examples at the top of his Census for S-174. Gorgeous medium olive is blended with light tan, with traces and splashes of faded mint color still visible in places on each side. EAC 50. (NGC ID# 2244, Variety PCGS# 36092, Base PCGS# 1434)
