This coin offers considerable detail for a more affordable sum. Both sides are actually quite bold, the only mentionable lack of detail being confined to the first couple of letters in the word LIBERTY at the upper-obverse border. The only real detraction, however, is an overall rough, dark texture from corrosion. The United States' second Cent, the 1793 Wreath was produced solely in that year after the only examples of the Chain design and before the first of the Liberty Cap pieces.
