Impressive Near-Mint 1797 C-1. 1 Above 1. A lovely high-grade example of this popular variety. Little to no wear and there is subtle glossy luster to the surfaces. The obverse is chocolate brown and choice while the reverse is a bit darker - perhaps recolored on that side after a little work was done to the surface between OF and AMERICA for some unknown reason. Without the slightly unnatural look to that side this would easily qualify for a grade 5+ points higher. As it sits, this is a very desirable example that faces up among the very best known of the variety. Fairly late die state, Manley 4.0+, but better struck than the usual late state example. 92.9 grains. Ex 2020 EAC Sale, lot 55.
