1793 S-1 R4 Chain AMERI. Basal State-1.
1793 S-1 R4 Chain AMERI. Basal State-1. Nice glossy chocolate brown. The planchet is smooth, completely free of roughness or stains. A script "G" is neatly engraved into the center of the obverse and there are a few small, shallow planchet chips on the reverse. LIBER is still visible, the portrait is faint but nearly complete, and using some imagination you can see hints of the tops of the 93. At least half the chain is visible and STATES is clear, which is fortunate since that's where a strong cud break connects TAT to the rim, Breen's rare terminal state VI. Decent eye appeal for a Basal State Chain Cent, and the cud break makes this cent very special, indeed. DWH #2248.
Estimated Value $3,000-UP.
