***Auction Highlight*** 1793 Wreath Vine & Bars S-10 Flowing Hair large cent 1c Graded ms61 details By SEGS. HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR – Up for Auction is a Mint State Sheldon 10 Flowing Hair Wreath Vine and Bars Cent. The S-10 Wreath cent is an elusive variety in higher grades. This 1793 Wreath cent offers superior quality and eye appeal for this design from the first year of regular issue U.S. Mint coinage. Boldly to sharply defined from a well executed strike. This example has full detail and no wear. It has some surface issues which do bring it to the details designation, but it is one of only 2 known S-10 in Mint State! While Chain cents often attract the most interest for their position as the first made, there is not a collector alive who would assert that Chain cents are more beautiful than their Wreath reverse counterparts. Breen boldly suggested that the elegance of the Wreath cents "was Director David Rittenhouse's answer to the newspaper criticisms" lodged against the Chain cent. Though no evidence exists to support this, the fact remains that the Wreaths represented a substantial step up in both design artistry and engraving execution. The details of this fine style design are lost with even light wear, making high grade Wreath cents such as this the crown princes of the early copper world. In any numismatic season a 1793 Wreath cent is an object of desire, and even coins that are worn nearly smooth command interest and attention. The 2000 reference Walter Breen's Encyclopedia of Early United States Cents: 1793-1814 states that approximately 4% of the mintage of 63,353 coins for the 1793 Wreath cent is extant, or 2,400 to 2,800 in all grades. About Uncirculated and Mint State survivors exist in a slightly greater percentage of the mintage than for later years, perhaps due to interest shown in these early U.S. Mint products by contemporary collectors in England, where numismatics was firmly established by the 1790s. Advanced numismatists will be sure to take note of this highlight among the early coppers in the auction. A Corey's Pick, Bid to Win, Don't let it get Away, you might not find its equal Coin. I give this coin my highest recommendation
