Description:

1800/1798 S-191, B-2 Large Cent, AU Details
First Hair Style
1800/1798 1C Overdate, First Hair Style -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. S-191, B-2, R.3. MRB VF35. Breen Die State VII, the latest state recorded, with extensive reverse bulges, cracks, clash marks, and missing detail from lapping. The obverse is an unused 1798 First Hair Style die that was overdated for use in 1800. This lovely cent will serve the Guide Book collector seeking an example of the First Hair Style overdate.
Both sides are pleasing with trivial marks and glossy surfaces from cleaning. The sharpness is about five points finer than the net grade, with tan and steel color and a small obverse rim bruise at 10 o'clock. Indistinct detail at the upper obverse is a result of the late reverse die state. Bland calls this piece VF30 and tied for eighth finest, while Noyes says XF40 and tied for third finest in his 2005 Census. This specimen was graded VF30 in the 2001 Bowers and Merena sale and VF35 in the 2003 Superior Sale.
R.E. Naftzger, Jr. received this coin from the ANS in exchange for returning the original, finer ANS Winsor coin from the George Clapp Collection. The story of Dr. Sheldon and the ANS has been told many times. When Naftzger purchased the Sheldon Collection in 1972, he received a number of ANS coins.
Ex: Dr. William H. Sheldon; American Numismatic Society (1/26/2001); R.E. Naftzger, Jr.; Bowers and Merena (8/2001), lot 16; R.E. Naftzger, Jr. (2/20/2002); Dr. Wallace Lee (Superior, 5/2003), lot 496; Jon Alan Boka.
