1794 S-56 R3 AG3. The "Office Boy Reverse" variety. Several points sharper but lightly corroded, strongest on the reverse where there are numerous shallow pits. A few of those pits near the fraction contain traces of reddish verdigris. A light rim bruise over IB in LIBERTY is the only contact mark. The date is weak but readable and the legends are nearly complete. The odd spacing of the letters of STATES and AMERICA remains evident (cause of the "Office Boy" label commonly applied to this variety).
Estimated Value $100-UP.
Ex Doug Bird 8/14/2010-John Ahern.
