1794 S-36 R5 G4. A couple points sharper but the hair left of the ear lobe appears to have been smoothed, perhaps to remove a contact mark, and similar smoothing as done inside the wreath. The planchet is mostly smooth but not perfectly so, and there is no verdigris. The notable marks are a small dig in the hair near the ear and a pair of short vertical scratches on the shoulder. Recolored glossy dark olive brown and steel. The bottom of the date is fading into the rim below but it remains easily readable, and the legends are essentially complete except for ONE CENT, which is nearly gone. Far from perfect but not bad for the grade, especially for this rare variety. Estimated Value $800-UP

Realized $776
