Lot 375

1795 S-78 R1 Plain Edge VG10. Double Struck with Rotation. Attractive glossy chocolate brown. Virtually perfect except for a small patch of shallow roughness near the dentils left of the lower curls. Boldly double struck, and both impressions were centered on the planchet but rotated 120 degrees between the impressions. There are two bold, complete dates: the normal one and another before the nose and forehead. Ample strong evidence of both strikes remains on the reverse as well, and the legend outside the wreath reads UNITED STATES OF AMATESCA with an extra fraction and ribbon at ST in STATES. A fantastic error with outstanding eye appeal in spite of the small patch of roughness. LDS.
Estimated Value $1,500-UP.
From the Davy Collection. Ex Robert Steinberg 11/10/70.

Realized $3,335
