Lot 374

1795 S-78 R1 Plain Edge F15. Double Struck with Rotation. Glossy dark chocolate and steel brown. The only marks are a couple faint hairline scratches in the field left of the lower curls and a small rim nick over the E in STATES. The planchet is nice and smooth on the obverse, but very fine roughness covers the fields on the lower half of the reverse. Boldly double struck with an 80 degree clockwise rotation between the two obverse strikes (CCW on the reverse, of course). The date from the initial strike is clearly visible in the field off the chin, and ample strong undertype is visible elsewhere on both sides. MDS, Breen state III. An attractive cent and a very impressive error strike. DWH #0104.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
Ex Dr. Charles L. Ruby, Superior 2/11/74:664-unknown-1989 EAC Sale, lot 52.

Realized $5,520
