1793 C-1 R3+. PCGS graded VF-35 Brown. Blundered Edge. Slightly sharper with traces of very light roughness mixed with fine reddish patina in the fields and protected areas on the lower half of the obverse. Otherwise the planchet is a nice glossy medium brown with smooth, attractive surfaces except for a couple small planchet voids in the field off the lowest curl and at the L in LIBERTY, as struck. Scarce LDS, Manley state 3.0, with a strong rim cud break over F-AME. Examples with the cud break seldom come in high grades, a fact noted by Breen on page 71 in his encyclopedia. In addition, the edge lettering is blundered with the T in TWO where the R in DOLLAR should be resulting in an edge reading DOLLATWO HUNDRED FOR A. Edge blunders such as this occurred when the operator of the Castaing machine failed to reset the device to the proper starting (null) position before adding the edge letters. Our grade is VF20. Weight 104.6 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; 3 finer for the die variety. (PCGS # 35003) .
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
Ex James R. McGuigan 4/27/1982-R. Tettenhorst-Missouri Cabinet (Mocab 93.1.2).

Realized $13,800
