1795 C-2b R6+ Punctuated Date with Thin Plain Edge Planchet VG7.
Very attractive glossy light to medium chocolate brown. Smooth and flawless except for a planchet chip in the center of the reverse and a relatively minor scratch from the right side of the second S in STATES down to the leaf stem below. The obverse is absolutely choice. The date is strong and the legends are clear. LDS, Manley state 3.0. A premium example of this rare variety in spite of the obvious flaw. Weight 81.5 grains.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
