Description

Choice Fine Key Date 1799 Cent

1799 1C Fine 15 PCGS. S-189, High R.2. The 1799 is the rarest date within the Large Cent series. Although three die marriages are known, one is non-collectible and the other two varieties (an overdate and a normal date) are also very scarce. This deep brown example exhibits substantial hair detail, although some weakness is seen on the base of the date and on the upper right reverse, mostly due to the die alignment. Both sides have a number of moderate handling marks, and the reverse has a minor rim bruise at 5 o'clock. It is curious that so few 1799-dated Cents were struck, when the 1799 Dollar, Half Eagle, and Eagle are not rare for their respective types. Encapsulated in a green label PCGS holder.
From The Albert E. Willis Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2246, PCGS# 1443)
