    1793 S-16, B-19 Liberty Cap Cent, VG Details
    Second Rarest Sheldon-Numbered 1793 Cap Variety

    1793 1C Liberty Cap -- Edge Damage -- NGC Details. VG. S-16, B-19, R.6. Our EAC Grade Good 4. Ex: Mervis Collection. This piece has the sharpness of VG8 with corroded steel and olive-brown surfaces, showing an obverse edge cut at 12 o'clock. Other surface marks and verdigris are lost in the corrosion. The surface quality prevents a determination of the die state. This cent is unlisted in the Bland and Noyes census lists, and ranks about 12th finest known per our EAC grade. The S-16 die marriage is the second rarest Sheldon-numbered 1793 Liberty Cap cent, behind the S-15, and slightly rarer than the S-12. Discovered by Walter Breen in 1956; Ray Chatham (via Richard Picker); Abe Kosoff; Admiral Worthington Bitler; Abe Kosoff; A-Mark (3/1973); Dr. C.R. Chambers; Ennis; Jack Beymer; Fred Borcherdt; Greg Hannigan.
    From The Adam Mervis Large Cent Collection.
