Attractive S-13 Liberty Cap Cent1793 1C Liberty Cap VF20 NGC. Fine 15 EAC. S-13, High R.3. Formerly certified VF20 by PCGS. On this higher graded example it is easy to discern the inherent beauty of the design, engraving, and die cutting of the S-13. This variety is the most plentiful of the '93 Caps and is an ideal choice for the collector seeking a single representative. Walter Breen estimated that at least 7,000 examples were struck, over half the entire mintage of 1793 Liberty Cap large cents. All 11,056 Liberty Cap cents were delivered from the coiner on September 18, 1793, just a week after designer Joseph Wright passed away. The surfaces are deep brown and olive with underlying traces of red coloration apparent over the devices. Each side shows light porosity, scattered small planchet flakes, and several light scratches (apparent only with a magnifier). The only rim bumps we see are located on the reverse at 3 and 4 o'clock. This '93 Cap cent is far finer than the typical 1793 Liberty Cap cent surviving today.
