Gorgeous Almost Uncirculated! The newly independent United States of America started it’s coinage with copper half cents and “large” cents in 1793. This was a super important event as minting your own coins a the supreme act of sovereignty. In 1793 there were three types of cents: the Chain cent, followed by the Wreath cent, finally the Liberty Cap cent. All three types were minted in limited quantities, were used in commerce at the time and not really saved at the time of issue. All three types are rare today in even the lowest circulated grades. These are the first U.S. cents, among the very first of our coins and they are all-time classics that are super important. Among the most important rare coins in the world. This beautiful Almost Uncirculated is a miracle survivor in almost mint state condition. The beautiful original light brown surfaces are mark-free and the eye appeal is outstanding. The strike is sharp and well-centered. A coin for the ages
