    1793 AMERICA Chain Cent, S-3
    Well Defined Early Type Coin

    1793 1C Chain, AMERICA, S-3, B-4, Low R.3, PCGS Genuine. Breen Die State III with clash marks near the profile and bust tip. The PCGS number ending in .97 suggests Environmental Damage as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of a VF specimen that has environmental damage. This Chain Cent type coin is sharper than most survivors. All legends are clear, and Liberty retains substantial inner hair detail. The mottled tan-brown and steel-gray surfaces are moderately granular, aside from the area about the LI in LIBERTY. The reverse displays freckles of green verdigris. Relevant marks are confined to a slight reverse rim knock at 6 o'clock. Our EAC grade VG8.
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II.
