Pleasing Early State 1799 S-189 Cent1799 1C S-189, Die State I, High R.2. VG10 NGC. VG7 EAC. The die chip in the field between the E of ONE and the T of CENT that is diagnostic of later die states is not yet obvious on this example. There does, however, appear to be incipient evidence of the narrow rim break above the space between the F of OF and the A of AMERICA which enlarges in later die states. Medium brown patination covers both sides of this key date large cent. The obverse displays very nice definition for the grade, with most of Liberty's middle hair strands showing, and the eye relatively sharp. All of LIBERTY shows, though the tops of some of the letters are soft, and the middle and tops of the date digits are strong. All of the reverse design elements show clearly, except that the UNIT of UNITED and the fraction are weak. A few minute abrasions on each side are not overly distracting, and one in the field beneath the chin can be used as a pedigree marker. Overall, this is a pleasing specimen for the grade.
