1794 C-8 R5. PCGS graded EF-45 Brown. CAC Approved. Glossy medium brown and light chocolate. Lightly worn with smooth surfaces that offer great eye appeal. The notable marks are a nick-like rim chip below the right ribbon end and a minor planchet lamination at ES-O, both as struck, plus a tiny pinprick or planchet chip on the jawline. EDS, Manley state 1.0, before the die crack from the dentils down through the second T in STATES. The reverse is misaligned slightly to K-3 but the obverse is almost perfectly centered on the planchet. Plated in the Breen encyclopedia (page 116) to illustrate his state III, and the reverse is plated on page 14 in the second edition of the Cohen book to show the unbroken die state. Our grade is VF30+, close to VF35. Near the top of the condition census for this very scarce die variety. Weight 109.1 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; tied for finest graded of the variety. (PCGS # 35060) .
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
