    1793 Chain AMERICA Cent
    Sheldon-3, XF Details

    1793 1C Chain, AMERICA, S-3, B-4, Low R.3 -- Damage -- PCGS Genuine. XF Details. Breen Die State I, unclashed on the obverse. Wear is light, Liberty's ear remains visible. The obverse is uniformly reddish brown in color, with largely smooth base surfaces. A few rim bumps are visible over LIBERTY, but they are minor. An old scratch through Liberty's lowest hair curl toward the bust truncation contributes to the Details grade from PCGS, as do other, lesser scratches and marks. The reverse is corroded and granular, weakening the border legend, although it remains clearly readable. An old scratch descends from the chain through the N in ONE. Sheldon-3 represents one of the AMERICA reverse varieties necessary for a Guide Book set. Our EAC grade Fine 12.
    From The Maurice Storck Collection.
