Beautiful Small Date Small Fraction 1803 Draped Bust Design Large Cent ANACS Graded G6
Description: A nice ANACS graded copper 1803 Liberty Head with a Draped Bust design large cent or penny. This coin is of the small date and small fraction variety. The coin itself is better than the scan shows and still shows the outline of the bust on the obverse. The details of the coins are considerably worn off commensurate with its good grade. The obverse shows the outline of the bust and some of the hair lines but most of the facial features are worn off but still shows the date. The reverse shows considerable wear especially in the fraction "1/100" where the 100 is totally gone. The word one cent in the center of the reverse and the words United States of America are still legible and show considerable wear as does the wreath. The coin has a very nice chocolate brown color and even honest wear commensurate with the grade. The coin is problem free and in original condition displaying a handsome brown colored patina. These coins were designed by Robert Scott . Early US coins such as this are gradually getting difficult to find. Please carefully review scan presented as it is part and parcel of our description.
Size and Weight: Originally 10.89 grams of a copper and is ~28-29 mm in diameter. The coin has the plain edge design.
