    1799/8 S-188, B-2 Cent, VF25
    The Eliasberg Specimen

    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.
    Ex: William Cutler Atwater (B. Max Mehl, 6/1946), lot 25; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 509; Stack's (7/2009), lot 123.
    From The Adam Mervis Large Cent Collection.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 2247, PCGS# 1446)
