1795 C-4 R3 Plain Edge AU50. Off Center. Cohen Plate Coin. Five points sharper with a shallow depression (probably pre-striking) in the unstruck portion of the planchet outside the dentils opposite the neck. Otherwise free of contact marks, only the usual tiny planchet flakes or chips showing on the portrait and center of the reverse where some of the normal planchet imperfections didnt completely smooth out during the strike. Lustrous chocolate and steel brown with delicate splashes of reddish chocolate and olive on both sides. The fields are slightly reflective and mint luster covers the reverse. Struck 10% off center to K-9. An outstanding example of an early mint error. Plated at page 21 in the second edition of the Cohen book on the "Little Half Sisters." Weight 88.1 grains. Davy #95.4.4.
Estimated Value $3,000-UP.
