Description:
1799/8 S-188 Late State Discovery Specimen
The Breen Die State Plate Coin
1799/8 1C Good 6 PCGS. S-188, R.4 for the variety, R.7 for the late die state. Ex: Davis-Rice-French. Breen Plate State IV.
There are just six known example of the terminal die state S-188 cent, with a heavy triple break through RTY that continues to the right obverse border. This example is the second finest of the six known examples, and the finest in collectors' hands, as the only better piece is in the ANS Collection. Of the six known examples, the ANS coin grades Fine 12, this piece grades Good-6, another grades Good-5, and three additional pieces all grade Basal State, or Poor-1.
This piece has sharpness of about Fine 12, with moderate corrosion on each side that pulls the net grade down to Good 6. Both sides are pleasing medium brown and olive.
It is an historic example of the die state, and the Breen Large Cent Encyclopedia plate coin for Die State IV. Its pedigree dates back to Robert Coulton Davis in 1890. EAC 5.
