    Lovely 1795 S-78, B-8 Cent, MS63 Brown

    1795 1C Plain Edge MS63 Brown PCGS. CAC. S-78, B-8, R.1. Housed in a early PCGS holder with white foam insert. The S-76B and S-78 are the two most plentiful 1795 large cent varieties, and the only two plain edge pieces that are obtainable without difficulty in Mint State grades. This pleasing olive and light tan piece has a few dull toning splashes on each side that should serve for identification. The surfaces have the usual tiny planchet marks, along with other post-mint abrasions that are entirely insignificant. Typical of the variety, the peripheral details are weak and the central design elements are sharper. EAC 55.
