Authenticated and graded by PCGS as VF Details Damage, but more importantly, an incredible early mint error! There are just a handful of off-center 1793 large cents, and this is one of those few coins! 1793 S-11a R4+ Wreath Cent, Vine & Bars Edge PCGS Genuine VF Details Damage. Sharpness VF in the areas where the designs were properly struck up, but the planchet is covered with moderate granularity and there are a half dozen small, dull punch marks on the obverse. Slightly glossy dark steel and olive brown with lighter chocolate brown toning on the highpoints of the devices.EDS, Breen state I, without any die clashmarks. Struck at least 10% off center to K-1 leaving portions of the legends off the planchet, including nearly all of LIBERTY and many of the elements at the bottom of the reverse. The date is complete and easily readable. An extremely rare type of mint error for a 1793 cent.
Walter Breen said he was aware of 3 or 4 off-center examples of the year, but it is reasonable to assume there were additional off-center pieces unknown to him. Struck on a planchet with version (b) of the Vine & Bars edge device. Our grade is net G5. The attribution, 10% Off-Center Error, and Neiswinter provenance are noted on the PCGS label.
