1796 Draped Bust Cent. Sharpness of EF-40 but porous so a net grade of Fine 15. The coin actually has very little wear, but the surfaces have minor roughness throughout. The obverse die was shattered, and many breaks are visible, as well as the sharp die cud over TY. On the reverse there is more porosity, and some raised corrosion patches. Identifiable by a pit at the top and between TE of UNITED. An impressive coin despite its minor problems.

Realized $1,495
