1793 Chain 1c PCGS VF20 (AMERI.)

DLRC #: 1833168 // PCGS #: 1340

A nice, wholesome VF example of this popular key date type coin. The first cent made in Philadelphia for a fledgling country, the reverse displays an abbreviated version of AMERICA as AMERI. Before the full word was later engraved on the die. Evenly worn, the details are consistent and nice for the grade throughout with quality definition.
