Description 1796 1C Reverse of 1797, S-119, B-40, R.3, MS64 Brown NGC. CAC. Our EAC Grade MS60. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. A heavy diagonal die crack crosses the lower left obverse, including the lowest shoulder curl and the 17 in the date. A second crack rises east of the 6 in the date. These cracks attribute S-119, a Nichols Find variety, irregularly obtainable "for a price" in Uncirculated grades but always in demand as a high-grade type coin. The late die state shows a reverse rim cud at 11 o'clock. This well preserved chocolate-brown near-Gem has mildly prooflike fields. Essentially unabraded, although tiny planchet marks persist due to a slightly incomplete strike on the lower obverse and upper reverse. The finest certified as S-119 at NGC; PCGS also has a single MS64 Brown with none finer (8/14). 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 @ $100.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $23500.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
