1795 C-5b No Pole with Thick Planchet R4. PCGS graded AU-55 Brown. Double Planchet Clip. Glossy light steel brown with subtle overtones of bluish steel on both sides. Faint hints of very faded mint color can be found in some of the protected areas. The only defects are some of the usual tiny planchet chips covering the fields on both sides, as struck. Struck on a thick planchet, most likely made from a spoiled large cent (or possibly scrap left behind after cutting large cent planchets). There are mint-made curved planchet clips extending to the dentil roots at K-1 to K-2 and K-4 to K-5. The curve of the clips suggests they were made with a large cent cutter rather than from a half cent cutter, but that is uncertain since the arcs are relatively small. Our grade is EF45. Weight 108.6 grains (obviously heavy when compared to the 84.0-grain standard in spite of the weight lost to the two clips). The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35086) .
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
