1794 S-44 R1 VF20. Sharpness near EF40 but there is extremely faint roughness well hidden under the attractive glossy chocolate brown toning. The only evidence of roughness visible without a good glass is a patch of shallow pitting under the O in OF. No verdigris. There are a couple faint contact marks in the field before the forehead and a pair of thin nicks above the N in ONE, plus a small rim nick at IC in AMERICA. Excellent eye appeal for the grade, especially on the obverse. MDS, Breen state III. A thin but clear double profile shows from the forehead down to the chin.
Estimated Value $1,500-UP.

Realized $1,668
