1794 S-70 R2, Head of 1795. PCGS Genuine, Unc Details, Tooled. Highly lustrous medium steel brown and light chocolate with traces of lighter reddish steel brown faded down from mint color in protected areas. Sharply struck and extremely attractive with one exception: there is a shallow scuff of microscopic pin scratches that breaks the frost and lightens the toning under IBE in LIBERTY. The reason for this intentional tooling appears to have been the removal of a couple small planchet flakes. The only other marks are a small planchet fissure at the rim opposite the neck passing through to the rim over the first A in AMERICA (as struck), a very faint hairline scratch along the top of the neck, and a horizontal nick hidden in the hair over the ear. Otherwise this cent is absolutely choice. Sharply struck E-MDS, Breen state II. The die crack from the rim between TY reaches down into the middle of the cheek where it fades away. Fine doubling from die bounce shows on the date, bust, and LIBERTY. Graded MS60 net AU55 and tied for CC#1 in the Noyes census, his photo #34100. Bland says MS60 and tied for CC#1. Our grade is MS63 net AU58. The attribution and Oswald-Reynolds provenance are noted on the PCGS label (PCGS # 35693) .
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
