1794 S-27 R5 VG8. Sharpness F12 but covered with very fine granularity. No verdigris. The only marks are some fine hairline scratches on the portrait and in the field off the chin, all blended perfectly into the toning, plus a dig on the O in OF. Slightly glossy medium chocolate brown with lighter brown toning covering the devices and traces of darker olive brown in protected areas. The date is strong and the legends are clear. The contrast in toning between the devices and fields accents the designs and adds to the eye appeal. E-MDS, Breen state II, before any visible die cracks on the obverse. Not perfect but still rather nice for the grade, especially for this tough variety. Estimated Value $1,000-UP

Realized $2,185
