    1793 S-10, B-10 Wreath Cent, VF30
    Vine and Bars Edge

    1793 1C Wreath, Vine and Bars Edge, S-10, B-10, R.4, VF30 PCGS. The Wreath cent design appeared in early April 1793 and remained in use through mid-July. The final delivery from Chief Coiner Henry Voigt to Mint Treasurer Tristram Dalton was dated July 17, 1793. Total production for the design was 63,353 coins that required 11 die pairs. Most of those coins had the Vine and Bars Edge, although two sub-varieties had the edge lettered. Current rarity ratings suggest that 2,000 to 3,000 Wreath cents survive, including 400 to 600 that had the edge lettered. Walter Breen suggested in his Large Cent Encyclopedia that all of the Vine and Bars coins were delivered in April, and that the Lettered Edge coins were delivered in July. There were no cent deliveries in May or June. This pleasing piece has a pleasing olive obverse and tan reverse with trivial marks of no consequence on either side. Our EAC grade VF20.
