Lot 70

1797 C-1 R2 1 Above 1 Variety VG8. Struck on a 1794 Talbot Allum & Lee Cent with Edge Lettering. A couple points sharper with myriad fine hairline scratches on both sides. The scratches all blend into the glossy chocolate and steel toning and the eye appeal remains quite nice for the grade. The only other defects are a small planchet flake above the first 7 in the date and a spot of very fine roughness at the H in HALF. E-MDS, Manley state 2.0. The date is strong. Struck on a 1794 TAL Cent with obvious undertype visible on both sides. The half cent planchet was cut out too close to the edge of the TAL Cent. As a result the planchet is not round and "HE STO" is clearly visible on the edge (from the normal 1794 TAL edge lettering that reads "PAYABLE AT THE STORE OF"). Weight 88.8 grains. Davy #97.1.8.
Estimated Value $800-UP.
Ex Ron Guth 7/23/82.

Realized $978
