    1795 Cent, MS63 Brown
    S-75, B-3, Lettered Edge

    1795 1C Lettered Edge, S-75, B-3, R.3, MS63 Brown PCGS. S-75 is a moderately plentiful variety overall, but is seldom found in this high of grade. Breen estimated about 24,000 examples were struck, this comprising the space of about three working days at the Mint. This is the only use of this reverse die, though this obverse was previously employed for the S-74 marriage. The 5 in the date is imbedded in the bust, and there are two leaves on the end of the right wreath branch. This example is evenly struck and well-centered, with bold, complete denticles around each side. Some minute granularity is seen in portions of the peripheral recesses, an often seen characteristic of this variety attributed to poor planchet quality. Tinges of coppery-red color resides amid deeper reddish-brown patina, giving this well-preserved large cent pleasing appeal. Our EAC grade AU55.
