    1793 NC-6, B-18 Cent, Good Details
    The Third Known Example

    1793 1C Liberty Cap, NC-6, B-18, R.8 -- Environmental Damage -- PCGS Genuine. Good Details. Well-known copper collector R.E. Naftzger, Jr. identified the 1793 NC-6 large cent in 1978, reporting his discovery in the March 1978 issue of Penny-Wise. The obverse does not appear anywhere else in the 1793 series, while the reverse die also appears on S-13, S-14, and S-16. The second example was located by John and James Bergman in May 1985. The third example (the present piece) was discovered by Texas Collector Marshall Bryant in 2018. We know of only seven collectors who have completed a set of the six 1793 Liberty Cap cent varieties.

    While PCGS suggests Good details, this example actually has sharper details where they can be made out, perhaps VG or Fine. The tan and light olive surfaces exhibit considerable porosity, including on the edge, and suggest that this piece was likely a ground find. Our EAC grade Fair 2.
