1794 1C Head of 1794, S-28, B-10, R.2, VG8 NGC. Five of the eight hair locks are almost perfectly aligned vertically, giving the name Five Vertical Locks to this obverse die. The reverse is known as the Single Leaf reverse since one leaf overlaps the wreath stem below RI of AMERICA. There are usually two leaves at that location, so this feature is diagnostic. The smooth peanut and olive-brown surfaces exhibit scattered handling marks with a small obverse rim bruise at 5 o'clock. This pleasing piece has Fine details on the obverse and Good details on the reverse. Our EAC grade Good 5. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
