Lot Description
1796 1C Draped Bust, Reverse of 1797 MS64 Brown PCGS. S-119, B-40, R.3. Breen Die State II with no die break above the AT in STATES. A short but bold die line through the upper leaf tip opposite the R in AMERICA also confirms this popular "Nichols Find" marriage. The 6 is entered too high, and its knob partly overlaps the bust truncation. This is a beautiful tan-brown piece with well struck borders and evenly impressed devices. The satiny surfaces are unperturbed, aside from a small medium brown spot in the field southeast of Liberty's chin, and an even more subtle maroon spot beneath the A in STATES. EAC 60. From The Essex Palm Collection.
