|Title||1795 1C S-75 Lettered Edge, BN, MS|
|Service Catalog #||35717|
1795 1C Lettered Edge, S-75, B-3, R.3, XF40 NGC. Breen Die State II, with the obverse crack from the border to the right side of the 9 extremely light, and with nearly imperceptible clash marks on the reverse. Rarity ratings suggest that less than one thousand 1795 Lettered Edge cents survive, and nearly half of those are examples of S-75. This variety is an ideal choice for Guide Book collectors who seek a single example of the 1795 Lettered Edge type. Faint hairlines on each side suggest that this piece has been cleaned and recolored, but expertly so. The surfaces are reddish-brown and chocolate with outstanding eye appeal. Our EAC grade VF25. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp and Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $15.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
