Lot Description
1796 1C Draped Bust, Reverse of 1794. S-101, B-25, R.5. XF40 NGC. VF20 EAC. Die State II. Dark brown with a couple of small areas of reddish corrosion on the lower reverse and a couple of pits. One of the pits is on the lower right of the T of LIBERTY, another on the rim well above Liberty's bust. A faint scratch slides down Liberty's forehead to her shoulder, crossing a couple of others on her neck. On the reverse there is a faint scratch over ED S of UNITED STATES. Excellent quality for this or any variety, with decent eye appeal and minimal distractions for the grade. Listed as Fine 15 and tied for 11th in Del Bland's census. As a VF20, this would be tied for eighth best. Bill Noyes agrees with the Fine 15 grade, but he places this example in the eighth best position. Ex: Ralph Goldstone; George Ramont (8/12/1976). Envelope Included.
