    Pleasing 1794 Sheldon-19b Cent

    1794 1C Head of 1793 XF40 NGC. VF25 EAC. S-19b, Die State I, High R.4. Edge Style of 1794. Another "Double Chin" variant, this one with the point and stem of the leaf after DOLLAR pointing up on the edge. Discovered before 1869 by Dr. Maris. This piece has the sharpness of a VF35 coin, but is downgraded by a few shallow slide marks on the obverse, and each side shows the normal light abrasions one associates with a VF coin. Struck on a natural, lightly colored planchet with no obvious evidence of porosity. A very attractive example of the variety with light olive and reddish-brown color.
    Traded November 9, 1956 by Freeman Smith to John Schreuder for a Pan-Pac half and a 1920-S quarter at an estimated cost of $25; Del Bland (12/79); Myles Z. Gerson; Bertram Cohen; George E. Ewing, Jr.; EAC Sale (5/96), lot 95.(#1362) (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 223M, PCGS# 1362)
