Lot Description
1794 1C Head of 1793 Fair 2 NGC. AG3 EAC. NC-4, R.8. Edge Style of 1794. There are two different edge devices known for the 1794 cents with Head of 1793. Each has a single leaf after the word DOLLAR. On the 1793 style edge type, this leaf points down in relation to the word DOLLAR, and on the 1794 edge type, this leaf points up. Just two examples of this sub-variety have been identified, the first being recognized by C. Douglas Smith in 1950 after purchasing the coin in a 1949 auction. A few nearly invisible scratches are noted, and small flaws in the flan are visible left of the date. The surfaces have dark brown color with hints of olive and tan. Ex: David L. Palmer; Tony Terranova (9/19/96).
