Lot 1493

1793 Flowing Hair Cent. Chain reverse, "AMERICA" in legend. PCGS graded VF-20 Brown. Nice even brown toning. This is Sheldon-3 with a close date and no periods. The R in LIBERTY leans precariously to the right and is out of alignment with the curve of the other letters. The surface is light brown on the worn areas of the profile, then deepens to somewhat roughish steel brown to greenish brown in the fields. The obverse rim is choice while there is some minor injury to the reverse rim above UNITED; also ONE CENT has come in for its share of rough handling, but is still clear and readable for the most part. An historic and scarce early Large Cent; one of the most challenging Types in the series, which extended from 1793 until 1857 (PCGS # 1341) .
Estimated Value $20,000 - 23,000.

Realized $25,875
