    S-2, B-2 1793 Chain Cent, VF20
    AMERICA Reverse

    1793 Chain 1C AMERICA VF20 NGC. S-2, B-2, High R.4. The first coins struck at the first U.S. Mint in Philadelphia were the Chain cents, and for as long as collecting American coinage has been a hobby, the type has been prized. As a fundamentally pleasing midrange representative of the spelled-out AMERICA reverse subtype, this is an important survivor. As with almost any 18th century U.S. coin that circulated, one could pick apart the coin, noting natural flaws such as a rim bump at the top of the obverse or a finely granular texture to deep mahogany surfaces tinged with olive. The wise collector, by contrast, will admire the reverse, which has bold links in the chain and few post-striking flaws aside from a dig below the T in CENT. MRB VG10.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 1341)
