    1793 Chain Cent, Fine Details
    AMERICA, S-2, B-2 Variety

    1793 1C Chain, AMERICA, S-2, B-2, High R.4 -- Damaged -- NGC Details. Fine. The Sheldon variety is easily identified by the widely spaced date and the fully spelled AMERICA on the reverse. The S-2 is the most elusive Chain cent variety, outside of the uncollectible NC-1. This coin is well-worn on the obverse and the chocolate-brown surfaces show some slight porosity. LIBERTY and the date are legible, but weak in places. The reverse is sharper, but shows a large gouge in the field between OF and AMERICA. Our EAC grade Good 4.
