1795 S-76b R1 Plain Edge VG7. Broadstruck. Glossy light chocolate and steel brown. Smooth and attractive. The only notable mark is a rim dent left of the cap. The date and LIBERTY are strong but portions of the reverse legend are weak or missing thanks to an uneven strike. MDS. Broadstruck (struck outside the restraining collar) allowing the planchet to flatten out more than normal, and the strike was slightly off center to K-9. The diameter is a full 30 millimeters versus the normal 28.5 millimeters.
Estimated Value $500-UP.
Ex McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Superior 2002 ANA Sale, 8/1/02:2474.

Realized $529
