1794 S-71 R2, Head of 1795. PCGS graded MS-61 Brown. Lustrous medium steel brown and light chocolate with generous traces of faded mint red remaining, especially on the obverse. No spots, stains, or roughness. The only marks are some barely visible planchet chips around the date and lowest curl and a microscopic planchet flake over the left foot of the E in AMERICA that can help identify this cent. The surfaces are lustrous and the eye appeal is excellent, but there is a hint of rub on the highest points of the hair (what we used to call "cabinet friction"). It's obvious this cent never circulated. MDS, Breen state IV, showing clear die clashmarks from AME before the face in addition to other sharp clashmarks around the portrait. Graded AU55 Choice and tied for CC#3 in the Noyes census, his photo #22674. Bland says AU55 and tied for CC#3. Our grade is AU58+, very close to MS60. The attribution and Oswald-Reynolds provenance are noted on the PCGS Secure label. Pop 2; none finer at PCGS for the variety (PCGS # 35696) .
Estimated Value $30,000-UP.
