Lot closed - Winning bid:$700

1794 C-6a R5+ G5. Small Edge Letters. A couple points sharper but the planchet is slightly rough under the glossy dark chocolate and steel brown toning. The highpoints are a few shades lighter than the protected areas. The roughness is strongest at the bottom of the reverse, but there is no verdigris on either side. The notable contact marks are a light rim bruise left of the cap and tiny rim nicks around much of the reverse, strongest over STATES. The date is clear and the legends are complete except for some elements at the bottom of the reverse. Weight 98.4 grains. A decent example of this rare variety in spite of the imperfect surfaces.
Estimated Value $650-UP.
