    1793 Liberty Cap Cent, Fair 2
    S-13, Rare First-Year Type Coin

    1793 1C Liberty Cap, S-13, B-20, Low R.4, Fair 2 PCGS. Early copper specialists are well aware that among the three major types of 1793 cents, the Liberty Cap is rarest. Most survivors are well worn and exhibit problems, such as corrosion or cleaning. This lavender-brown representative has a full date and a clear LIBERTY. Liberty's bust and cap are nicely outlined, save for the neck curls. The lower half of the wreath is clear, as are portions of STATES and AMERICA. The surfaces are moderately granular, and the portrait is somewhat glossy. Our EAC grade Fair 2.
