    Very Pleasing, Glossy, Sharply Struck S-43 1794 Large Cent, AU55

    1794 1C Head of 1794 AU55 NGC. S-43, High R.2. Last sold ten years ago in our 1993 ANA Sale, where it was described as, "Well struck throughout, exhibiting the diagnostic breaks from the edge through the 7 and 1 in the date and on the reverse through U in UNITED, extending into the wreath. A possible condition census S-43, considered by Sheldon to be 'a difficult variety in which to find an attractive coin above the VF level.' " But that description does not go quite far enough in describing the phenomenal surfaces of this coin. Deep, chocolate brown patina covers each side with much of the original glossiness still apparent. Well centered and showing especially strong striking details, Liberty's hair is especially well defined. Outstanding quality in a 1794 cent.
    Ex: 1993 ANA Sale (Heritage, 7/93), lot 5912.
