1794 S-38 R5 NGC graded XF Details Scratches & Rim Damage Glossy dark olive brown with slightly lighter chocolate toning on the devices. The surfaces are mostly smooth but there are traces of light corrosion on both sides, particularly around the D in UNITED where there are specks of verdigris. A collection of old scratches on the bottom of the neck is evidence of an attempt to remove some verdigris, and there is a long rim dent left of the cap that has been smoothed. None of these "improvements" was done with significant skill but the eye appeal of this cent is not as bad as you might suspect. MDS. The date and legends are all complete and easily readable. Graded net F12 by Noyes and Bland. Our grade is VF25 sharpness net VG10. Comes with a nice provenance. The attribution and Exman provenance are noted on the NGC label. Ex Dr. William H. Sheldon-Dorothy I. Paschal-Eugene Exman, Heritage 6/4/2015:3046-Dan Trollan Collection (includes the Exman collection envelope and lot ticket).
