1793 Chain 1c AMERICA PCGS F15

DLRC #: 235308 // PCGS #: 1341

We are very excited to offer this famous numismatic treasure -- the 1793 Chain Cent. While Chain cents come and go in the marketplace, precious few of them in circulated grades have nice planchets and legible strike details. The piece has it all. The color is medium chocolate brown; date is clear and full and the surfaces are downright pleasing. A Chain Cent with no excuses is a rare bird indeed.
