Lot 126

1793 S-1 R4 Chain AMERI. PCGS graded Fine-12. Somewhat glossy dark chocolate brown and olive with lighter chocolate toning on the highpoints on the obverse. The planchet is decent, especially for a Chain AMERI, but a glass reveals uniform microscopic roughness covering both sides. No verdigris and only a few contact marks. The notable ones are a fine scratch arcing through the date, a nick in the hair left of the ear, a thin nick under the M in AMERI, and a small rim nick over the N in UNITED. The date is relatively weak (a characteristic of this obverse die) but it is easily readable and the legends are strong. EDS+, Breen state II, with a faint bulge at the U in UNITED. Our grade is VG10+ sharpness net VG8+ (and the reverse is a solid F12). The AMERI. feature is noted on the PCGS label. Only 36,103 struck.
Estimated Value $18,000-UP.
