1796  S-101  R5-  F15
Draped Bust, Reverse of 1794. A strong example of this tough variety. Solid VF25 sharpness and there are next to no marks. Very dark olive with a dusting of green and minor build-up around some of the details. The patina is dark but the surfaces are quite hard and retain a natural texture and gloss. Certainly not “rough” or “porous.” Overall an appealing, well-pedigreed specimen. TCC#8 in Noyes as F15, and it’s been graded higher by others. Ex Richard Picker – G.
