||1800 1C S-197, B-12, R.1 -- Damaged -- NGC Details. Fine. Our EAC Grade Good 5. A heavy die break near the B in LIBERTY allows prompt attribution of S-197. However, it is better known as the "Q variety" because of die chips near the first 0 in the date. The present deep brown example is somewhat granular and displays faint marks from verdigris removal on the field near the hair ribbon. A few specks of green verdigris accompany UNITED. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
