Lovely 1797 S-123 Nichols Find Cent, MS64 Brown

1797 1C Reverse of 1797, Stems, S-123, B-12, R.4 MS64 Brown PCGS. The die chip just below Liberty's eye identified this Nichols Find variety that is usually found in or near Mint State grades. Considered R.4, meaning between 80 and 200 examples survive, well over half of the known examples grade AU or better. In fact, the variety would probably be a solid R.5 or perhaps even R.6 if that hoard never existed.
Like nearly all coins from the Nichols Find, the surfaces are pleasing medium brown with smooth, slightly reflective fields. Most of the few marks in the right obverse field and elsewhere actually remain from the original planchet before the coin was struck. This is an outstanding example that provides date and type collectors an excellent opportunity to acquire a high grade Draped Bust cent. EAC 60.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2242, PCGS# 1422)
