1794 C-5a R4+. Fine-12. Small Edge Letters. Sharpness F15 or slightly better but extremely fine granularity covers the fields and protected areas on both sides, strongest on the reverse. No verdigris or notable marks other than a minor planchet clip (as struck) affecting the dentils over the top of the cap. Rather glossy dark olive with light chocolate brown toning covering the highpoints. The two-tone appearance is attractive and the contrast accents the devices and legends. The date and legends are complete and strong. Rare LDS, Manley state 2.0, showing strong die clashmarks around the portrait. The reverse is rotated 30 degrees CW from a normal head-to-foot die orientation. A decent mid-grade example of this tough variety.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.

Realized $1,725
