1793 S-11a, B-16a Wreath Cent, AU53
1793 1C Wreath Cent, Vine and Bars AU53 PCGS. S-11a, B-16a, High
R.4. Ex: Holmes. This is one of those unusual situations where
just about everyone agrees on the grade. Tom Reynolds, Bill Noyes,
Bob Grellman, Dan Holmes, and Mark Borckardt all grade this
specimen VF30, while Walter Husak preferred VF35. Just missing the
census, Bill Noyes places this example in a tie for the eighth
finest known specimen.
Final Vine and Bars Wreath Cent
A transitional die marriage, the S-11a was the last Vine and Bars Edge Wreath cent minted. Lettered Edge planchets were soon in production, used for the last Wreath cents, S-11b and S-11c. The three subtypes were actually minted simultaneously from a single obverse and reverse die.
Pleasing light brown surfaces with some diagonal linear planchet flaws at the lower reverse. A few faint hairlines on each side suggest that this piece may have been cleaned at one time in its past. A small rim bruise is noted below the right ribbon end. Our EAC grade VF30.
Ex: Tom Reynolds (12/2002); Walter Husak (Heritage, 2/2008), lot 2010; Daniel W. Holmes (Goldberg Coins, 9/2009), lot 18.
