    1800/79 S-192, B-6 Cent, AU55
    Style Two Hair

    1800/79 1C Style Two Hair, S-192, B-6, R.4, AU55 NGC. Breen Die State III with an arc crack from IC of AMERICA through the fraction, and a branch from that crack to the tail of the adjacent R. The 1800 overdated large cents include five die pairs with Style One Hair and six die pairs with Style Two Hair. The present example is from the S-192 die pair, a relatively common variety with a low Condition Census. This example is equal to several others that are tied for the sixth finest known. The sharpness is XF45 or perhaps slightly finer with a few trivial handling marks on each side. Likely cleaned long ago, the surfaces are lovely steel-brown with areas of pale orange. A small corrosion spot appears over the left serif of the I in LIBERTY, and a minor nick is over the second T in STATES. Our EAC grade VF30.
