New 1796 Draped Bust Large Cent - S-109, very sharp obverse!
1796 Large Cents are like potato chips. You can't have just one.
This is an S-109, one of the more common varieties of the date. This variety also often comes with a weak reverse, especially so on this piece because the concavo-convex planchet caused the reverse to wear especially quickly compared to the obverse. This is the sharpest obverse of any DBLC in my collection and the sharpest date out of my 1796s.
Currently up to 5 Sheldon varieties of this date. 34 to go!
