1794 C-2b Large Edge Letters R6-. PCGS graded AU-55+ Brown. CAC Approved. Glossy chocolate and steel brown with a hint of reddish chocolate toning on the obverse. The surfaces are smooth and very attractive. The only notable defects are some tiny, light nicks near the dentils over ERT, a small pinprick over the 1 in the date, and a collection of microscopic pre-striking planchet chips at NIT in UNITED. A thin, curving struck-through line under LF in HALF is a good identifying mark for this important piece. Sharply struck EDS, Manley state 1.0, before any die clashmarks. Plated on page 94 in the Breen encyclopedia to illustrate the variety (the large photos) and on page 19 in the Manley book to illustrate the variety and his die state 1.0. Our grade is EF45. Finest known of the Large Edge Letters version by a wide margin. Weight 108.5 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35027) .
Estimated Value $30,000-UP.
