||1794 1C Head of 1794, S-57, B-55, R.1, XF45 NGC. Our EAC Grade VF30. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Breen Die State I. The S-57 variety is easily recognized by the button on the lower corner of the cap, and the partially embedded berry in the bow on the reverse. The S-57 is one of the most available varieties of the date, but high-quality examples are quite elusive. This coin is from the rare Die State I, with clash marks on the central reverse and left branch, but no defect above ICA in AMERICA. The lightly abraded surfaces display an attractive mix of olive and chocolate-brown colors. The central design elements are lightly worn and sharply rendered, but the legends are a little weak on both sides. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $10.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
