1794 C-1b R6 F12+. Small Edge Letters. Sharpness F15 or a bit better but there are two vertical scrapes on the mouth and an arc of impressed dentils on the bust fading into the field over the date. These marks are old and blend perfectly into the natural toning. Otherwise the surfaces are smooth and the eye appeal is excellent. Attractive glossy medium brown blending to very light chocolate brown in protected areas. The date, legends, and Small Edge Letters are all clear. EDS, Manley state 1.0, showing no trace of a bulge at the top of the wreath. The reverse is rotated 20 degrees CCW relative to the normal head-to-foot die orientation. A condition census example of this very rare variety. Graded VF20 by Stack's when they sold it as part of the Schonwalter collection (1/21/2003:1085).
Estimated Value $7,500-UP.
Ex New Netherlands Coin Co. (privately) 5/12/1959-Robert Schonwalter, Stack's 1/21/2003:1085 (lot ticket included).
