1796 S-102, B-26 Cent, AU Details
1796 1C Draped Bust, Reverse of 1794 -- Improperly Cleaned --
NGC Details. AU. S-102, B-26, R.4. This early die state
specimen has a faint reverse crack at AM. A sharply detailed piece
with deep steel-brown surfaces. Old corrosion is evident, and the
left obverse field has been burnished. A small edge dent is noted
below the date and another edge dent right of the Y in LIBERTY is
covered by the tab on the holder. Still an attractive cent that was
good enough for Homer Downing, Doug Smith, and Robinson Brown, Jr.
Our EAC grade VF20.
