    1799/8 S-188, B-2 Cent, XF Details
    Extremely Rare Terminal Die State

    1799/8 1C S-188, B-2, R.4 -- Environmental Damage -- PCGS Genuine. XF Details. Breen Die State IV, the extremely rare terminal die state with heavy die cracks at the upper right obverse. When the Breen Large Cent Encyclopedia was published 15 years ago, there were only six known examples of this terminal die state. There were seven known when the Daniel W. Holmes Collection was sold in 2009. The finest of those is part of the ANS Collection and carries a grade of Fine 12 according to Del Bland. Three other late die state pieces carry a grade of 1. This piece, despite its greenish-ebony surfaces and moderate corrosion, has sharper design details than any other, and we place it in the second spot among the terminal survivors. Our EAC grade VG7. (NGC ID# 2247, Variety PCGS# 36131, Base PCGS# 1446)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
