An unusually "affordable" early chain cent housed in an early PCGS holder. The front shows some obvious signs of wear with the typical marks of a lower grade issue, but the definition of the devices on the reverse stand out pulling this coin to a higher-end VG piece. Perfect for the type collector before the price doubles in a single grade higher.
An extremely popular issue, it gets its name from the 94 tiny stars around the border of the reverse die. As is typical for the date, the reverse is of a much lower grade than the obverse but the obverse is so nice that it carries the piece to a VG8.
