Description:
Desirable 1799/8 S-188 Cent
1799/8 1C Fine 15 NGC. Fine 12 EAC. S-188, Die State II, Low R.4. The 1799 overdate cent, Sheldon-188, was coined from a reverse die that was later used to produce the 1798 S-186 variety. Take a look at the S-186 in this sale, and note the heavy die crack at lower right, terminating at 6 o'clock with a heavy rim break. You will not see any trace of such a die crack on this, or any 1799 overdate, except for the six known late die state coins that also have a heavy obverse die crack. Not only is this important for the Mint historian looking to establish the order that of striking at the first Mint, but it is also extremely important knowledge for the authenticator. It would be impossible to produce an altered date 1799/8 cent from a previous 1798 large cent. If the correct reverse were chosen, it would have the very heavy reverse crack, but no obverse die crack. Any other reverse will be easily disproven as it would not match the proper diagnostics for the genuine.
This lovely cent has wonderful surfaces on each side, with intermingled tan and darker brown color with a trace of olive. A few very minor surface marks are noted with all of these completely consistent with the grade. An extremely important opportunity for the advanced collector.
