Lot closed - Winning bid:$1,650

1795 S-76a R5 Lettered Edge VG10. A few points sharper but there are a pair of small, shallow planchet voids on the jawline, another on the bust, and a larger one at ST that contains traces of reddish planchet slag. Otherwise the planchet is quite nice for the grade and shows only a few minor contact marks. The notable ones are a fine hairline scratch on the bust above the 5 and a dull rim nick at NI in UNITED. The date is strong and the legends are clear. A decent example of the tough Lettered Edge version of this die variety.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.
