    Pleasing "Sprung Die" Wreath Cent

    1793 1C Wreath Cent--Vine and Bars--VF25 NGC. Fine 15 EAC. S-6, Die State I, R.3. The well-known "Sprung Die" obverse is always seen with some degree of bulge or convexity in the left obverse field, although this is an early die state with little evidence of the bulge. This variety apparently formed some 7,500 to 8,000 of the 12,000 cents struck between April 4 and 9 and delivered on the latter day, according to Walter Breen. This is a pleasing, glossy, light brown example that has modest amounts of reddish-brown and steel-gray color interspersed. Evenly worn from side to side, the only mentionable defects are a few small planchet flakes out of both obverse and reverse and three tiny planchet defects on the rims: one at 6 o'clock on the obverse, the other two at 3 and 4 o'clock on the reverse, the latter close to a tiny rim bump.
