Lot 55 – 1797 C-1 R2 AU50

1 Above 1. A lovely high grade example of this popular variety. Little to no wear and there is sutble glossy luster to the surfaces. The obverse is chocolate brown and choice while the reverse is a bit darker - perhaps recolored on that side after a little work was done to the surface between OF and AMERICA for some unknown reason. Without the slightly unnatural look to that side this would easily qualify for a grade 5+ points higher. As it sits, this is a very desirable example that faces up among the very best known of the variety. Fairly late die state, Manley 4.0+, but better struck than the usual late state example. 92.9 grains.
