Scarce 1793 S-4 Periods Chain Cent, Fine 151793 Chain 1C Periods Fine 15 NGC. S-4, B-5, High R.3. The Chain cent with periods following the date and LIBERTY is a separate Guide Book type that is represented by only one variety. As a result, it is in extreme demand from both variety specialists and Guide Book type collectors. The Chain cents were the first of the three major design groups struck in 1793, as the Philadelphia Mint began producing our nation's coinage. Five different die varieties of the 1793 Chain cents are known, although one of the five is extremely rare with only two known specimens.
This piece has deep gray-brown surfaces with modest corrosion, minor abrasions, and small rim bumps on each side. It is quite typical of low and middle grade 1793 Chain cents. EAC 8.
