    1794 S-32, B-18 Cent, XF40
    Tapered Planchet

    1794 1C Head of 1794 XF40 PCGS. S-32, B-18, R.2. Our EAC Grade VF30. Breen Die State V. The reverse has a heavy die crack through the first S with top of that letter filled, and with the crack ending in a bulge at ON. Multiple reverse clash marks are jumbled from the dies clashing at various rotations. The reverse is rotated about 75 degrees clockwise. A late die state, apparently struck from dies that were not perfectly parallel in the press. The right obverse and opposing reverse show myriad planchet marks from the copper stock that were not struck out on this slightly tapered planchet. The enlarged photograph in the Breen Large Cent Encyclopedia is another example with a similar appearance.
    From The Adam Mervis Large Cent Collection.(Registry values: P1)
