    1797 S-135, B-5 Cent, MS64 Brown
    A Nichols Find Variety

    1797 1C Reverse of 1797, Stems, S-135, B-5, R.3, MS64 Brown PCGS. CAC. Breen Die State IV, showing faint clash marks on both sides, a short crack across two leaves below the R in AMERICA, and die chips over the C in that word. The Nichols Find was a small group of 1796 and 1797 large cents that were acquired at the time of minting, and preserved until David Nichols acquired the coins and dispersed them in the 1860s. Most or all Mint State 1796 S-119, 1797 S-123, and 1797 S-135 cents that exist today are from that hoard. Housed in a green label holder, this Choice Mint State piece has trivial marks on the glossy light brown surfaces with reflective fields. Delicate blue overtones enhance the eye appeal. Our EAC grade MS60. (NGC ID# 2242, Variety PCGS# 35936, Base PCGS# 1422)
