    1793 Chain Cent, Fine 12
    S-3, B-4, AMERICA Reverse

    1793 1C Chain, AMERICA, S-3, B-4, Low R.3, Fine 12 PCGS. Breen Die State III, with clash marks below the bust. The sharpness of this Chain cent is slightly finer than the overall grade that PCGS has assigned. Dark brown surfaces with lighter tan on the highpoints, especially on the obverse. The surfaces are finely granular. Abrasions are evenly distributed and of little consequence to the overall appearance of the coin. A few faint scratches and minor pitmarks are only evident with a glass. The edges, primarily on the obverse, have several minor bruises that are typical on these old pieces of copper, but insufficient to prevent PCGS from grading this piece. Our EAC grade VG8.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 2226, realized $19,550.
