    1793 Chain Cent, VG8 Details
    America, Periods, S-4

    1793 1C Chain, AMERICA, Periods, S-4, B-5, R.3, -- RE-Engraved, Corroded - Damaged -- ANACS Details. VG8. The periods after the date (barely visible) and LIBERTY identify the popular S-4 variety. The design elements retain VG sharpness but the date has been re-engraved and the steel and olive-brown surfaces show extensive corrosion on both sides. Some long, thin scratches on the bust constitute the damage noted on the holder. LIBERTY and about two thirds of the reverse legend remain legible on this sought-after first-year issue. Our EAC grade Poor 1.
