||1796 1C LIHERTY, S-103, B-27, R.4 -- Obverse Damage -- NGC Details. VG. Our EAC Grade AG3. Two leaves (instead of three) near the O in OF confirm the scarcer of the two LIHERTY varieties. The engraver initially entered the B in LIBERTY upside-down, then repunched the letter correctly. A nicely defined example aside from softness on the bottom half of the date. We note three light, thin marks on ONE CENT and a vertical pinscratch on the portrait. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
