    1793 S-2 Chain Cent, VF Details
    AMERICA, Famous Type

    1793 1C Chain, AMERICA, S-2, B-2, High R.4 -- Scratches -- NGC Details. VF. Sheldon-2 has widely spaced letters and digits in LIBERTY and the date, respectively. The E in ONE is close the chain link. The 1793 Chain cent is one of the foundational issues in American coinage. Indeed, it was the first issue struck at the Philadelphia Mint and a single-year type that was quickly replaced. This VF Details representative has deep brown surfaces with reddish accents. The date is faint but the other legends remain bold. Most of Liberty's portrait outline is clear. Slightly porous surfaces display scratches, most prominently on the obverse. A flaw occurs above the 1. Our EAC grade VG8.
    From The San Juan Collection.
