1795 C-6b No Pole with Thick Planchet R5+. PCGS graded AU-50 Brown. CAC Approved. Glossy medium brown and chocolate, but the planchet is not perfectly smooth. There is a spot of greenish verdigris over the F in OF, a shallow carbon spot over the Y in LIBERTY, a few fine hairline scratches on the lower half of the obverse, a reddish spot in the field before the eye, and traces of light verdigris around the fraction. EDS, Manley state 1.0. A sharp, attractive example in spite of the imperfect surfaces (which are typical on this variety). The date and legends are complete and clear, and the strike is rather well centered on the planchet. Our grade is EF40 net VF30. Third finest known of this rare variety in the Spurlock condition census. Weight 106.6 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; finest graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35092) .
Estimated Value $25,000-UP.
Ex James R. McGuigan 10/30/1987-R. Tettenhorst-EPNNES-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 95.6b.4).
