1799/8 1C Sheldon 188 Draped Bust Cent PCGS G4BN


Terrific, bold date, especially for this notoriously weak issue! Chocolate brown fields are nicely preserved.  There are a few tick marks here and there and the wear  you would expect to find, but the design elements and obverse lettering/date are superb with regard to retained detail.  The reverse has some weakness where the lettering is rubbed off, specifically TES OF and UNI.  However, the central motifs are nice and strong with a full denomination and fraction as well as wreath.  Remarkably nice for the assigned grade and sure to please the new owner.
