1793 Chain Cent, Periods Obverse, S-4
1793 Chain 1C Periods -- Obverse Graffiti -- NGC Details. XF.
S-4, B-5, R.3. This Chain cent features the one-use-only
obverse die that puts periods at the ends of LIBERTY and the date.
It also has a single unfortunate post-striking addition, a large
graffiti "X" scratched on Liberty's portrait. The reverse with the
famous Chain design, on the other hand, shows no such graffiti,
though it does have a number of small rim bumps and marks on
still-glossy blue-brown surfaces. Even so, this coin earns its XF
Details rating with clear and strong links. The collector who
wishes to own a Chain cent for reverse-up display will find this an
ideal example. Our EAC grade Fine 12.
