1794 S-19b R4 Head of 1793, Edge of 1794 G5. Several points sharper, especially on the reverse where the high rim protects the devices, but both sides have been burnished and a small dig or pit over the pole has been removed. Traces of microscopic roughness remain visible in protected areas while the highpoints are very smooth. A pinprick on the pole near the neck is the best identifying mark. No verdigris. Retoned glossy chocolate and olive brown. MDS, Breen state II, with swelling in the field under the cap. The date is weak but easily readable and the legends are complete although STATES OF is relatively faint. The edge lettering is bold. Estimate Value $500 - UP
