PCGS-Certified 1799 Draped Bust Cent, Fine 12, Sheldon-189

1799 1C Fine 12 PCGS. S-189, High R.2. There are three known die marriages of the key date 1799 Draped Bust Cent: S-188 is the "common" overdate, S-189 is the perfect date, and NC-1 is the non-collectible overdate. We do not know exactly how many 1799 Cents were originally produced since the mintage figure is included in the 1.8 million-coin total for 1798. Like the VG Details representative that we are also offering in this sale, this coin is boldly detailed over the word LIBERTY with softness of strike on the date and in the corresponding area on the reverse. The balance of the features are appreciably bold, and the otherwise charcoal-brown color lightens over many of the devices. Some verdigris is noted in the more protected areas, particularly on the reverse. (NGC ID# 2246, PCGS# 1443)
