1799/8 S-188, B-2 Cent, VF25
1799/8 1C VF25 PCGS. S-188, B-2, R.4. Our EAC Grade Fine 15.
Ex: Eliasberg. Breen Die State III, with clash marks, but no trace
of the late state obverse die cracks. A wonderfully smooth example
with intermingled olive, tan, and steel-brown toning. Few 1799
large cents of any variety have pleasing brown surfaces, as most
are dark and rough. The sharpness is about 10 points finer, with
scattered circulation marks and minor scratches, none that stand
out. Many would assign an EAC grade of VF20 to this example. The
1799 large cents are among the most famous 18th century coins,
thanks to the efforts of Joseph Mickley who was born that year.
