1795 C-1a R2 Lettered Edge G5.
Clipped Planchet. Slightly glossy dark olive and steel with slightly lighter chocolate brown toning on the highpoints. The planchet is covered with extremely fine roughness, but it is mostly hidden under the natural patina. No marks or verdigris. A nearly straight planchet clip (end of strip?) affects the dentils at the cap and the opposing ones over UNIT. The date and legends are complete and readable but they are not strong. The edge lettering is complete except for the D in DOLLAR, which was lost in the clip. EDS, Manley state 1.0. Weight 94.4 grains.
Estimated Value $300-UP.
