1797 Draped Bust Cent. S-139. Rarity-1. Noyes Die State B. Reverse of 1797, With Stems. AU-53 (PCGS).

Lightly mottled dark tan and chocolate brown. Smooth and quite pleasant on the obverse, with the later-state die cracks easily seen at the lower left. The reverse is deeper in tone, and exhibits some light surface verdigris which is balanced by traces of satiny luster in the protected areas. Not quite to the Condition Census, but not far away, either. The impressed denticles reported by Noyes to be seen on some examples, near the date, are very prominent on this specimen. A very respectable example of the variety.
