1793 C-1 R3+ VF25. Choice glossy light chocolate brown with slightly darker chocolate and olive brown toning on the highpoints. A truly beautiful example with smooth, virtually flawless surfaces. The only marks, and they are trivial, are a tiny rim nick left of the L in LIBERTY and a light rim bruise at the F in OF. Nicely struck E-MDS, Manley state 2.0 early. The faint rust streaks in the left obverse field associated with state 2.0 are just starting to form. The strike is properly centered on the planchet and the reverse is aligned perfectly head-to-foot. Noyes photo #73603. A great way to begin the sale of this outstanding collection, one filled with beautiful examples that were carefully selected for their quality and eye appeal. Weight 101.5 grains.
Estimated Value $8,000-UP.
