    1794 S-44, B-33 Head of 1794 Cent, AU50
    Advanced Die State

    1794 1C Head of 1794, S-44, B-33, R.1, AU50 PCGS. Breen Die State IV with advanced obverse and reverse die cracks. This pleasing cent has the sharpness of XF45 with scattered handling marks on each side. The surfaces are attractive olive-brown with faint blue overtones. While the S-44 is one of the plentiful 1794 varieties, higher grade examples are elusive. This piece ranks among the 30 finest representatives of the die pair known today. Our EAC grade VF35.
