1793 Chain 1c PCGS VG-10 (AMERICA, OGH)

Old Green Label Holder

Eye Appeal:
Degree of Toning: 5/10

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.

Asking Price: $11,750.00
