1794 S-33 R6 VG7. Sharpness F12 but dull from uniform microscopic roughness. No verdigris or pits, and the only mark is a barely visible rim bruise at the first S in STATES. The date and legends are complete and easily readable except for ONE CENT which was obliterated by the usual swelling in the center of the wreath. Medium chocolate brown. M-LDS, Breen state V, with all 6 of the "Wheel spoke" die cracks on the reverse, but the final die crack from the cud above LI to the cap has not formed. A decent if imperfect example of this rare and very popular die variety, one of the keys to a variety set of 1794 cents by Sheldon number. Estimated Value $15,000-UP

Realized $18,975
