    1793 S-11b Wreath Cent, AU50
    Lettered Edge, Well Defined

    1793 1C Wreath, Lettered Edge, S-11b, B-16b, R.4, AU50 PCGS. Breen Die State III, with bold clash marks from the wreath on the field in front of Liberty's neck. The sole Wreath cent variety without any leaves pointing left from the obverse sprig. A well-defined example with pleasing peach-gold, medium-brown, and steel-gray surfaces. Obverse dentilation is complete. Reverse dentils are absent between 11 and 3 o'clock, due to a slightly misaligned reverse die. A relatively small cigar-shaped flaw is northeast of the 3 in the date, and we note a thin vertical line behind the eye and a second line above the NE in ONE. Housed in an old green label holder that obscures the edge. However, previous observers record this as the scarcer Lettered Edge subvariety, S-11b. Our EAC grade XF40.
    From The Dickson Collection.
