|Service Catalog #||35456|
1793 1C Wreath, Vine and Bars Edge, S-8, B-13, R.3, Fine Details Uncertified. This intriguing Wreath cent appears to be a genuine example that has had the dark brown fields carefully stippled; apparently by the same hand that created the Smith Counterfeits that were adjusted from 1794 cents. Some of the design features have been carefully re-engraved to strengthen their appearance. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
