About Uncirculated 1793 AMERICA Chain Cent, Periods Variety1793 Chain 1C Periods AU50 NGC. S-4, R.3. Periods after LIBERTY and the date identify this scarce die marriage, which is less often encountered in better grades than the "Leaning R" Sheldon-3. Moderate wear on Liberty's ear and the nearby curls define the grade, while the peripheral and low relief hair are splendidly detailed. All legends are bold, including UNITED STATES OF AMERICA which in much lower circulated grades vanishes due to the lack of a prominently raised rim. The rich mahogany-brown surfaces are smooth and lack the granularity or verdigris that usually accompanies survivors of this famous inaugural type. The reverse has a few minor rim dings and a couple of faded and small marks are noted in the obverse field near the date and Liberty's nose. An impressive example that challenges the lower ranks of the Condition Census for the die marriage.(#91341) (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 223F, PCGS# 91341)
