1796 S-87 R3 Liberty Cap VG8. A couple points sharper with too many light contact marks for the higher grade. The best identifying marks are a minor rim bruise left of the date, a diagonal hairline on the cheek, and a rim nick over the second S in STATES. Glossy medium chocolate brown and steel. MDS with swelling at the bottom of the 6 and the reverse rotated 20 degrees CCW relative to the normal head-to-foot die orientation. The bottom of the 6 is a bit weak due to the swelling in that area but everything else is clear. Estimate Value $400 - UP
