Description & Analysis

Most of the 904,585 large cents struck in 1799 were presumably dated 1798, while the exact number bearing the 1799 date is unknown. Since this date has always been considered scarce, a figure below 50,000 is almost a certainty.

S-189 is the most often seen variety of 1799 cent. It is the only one of three die marriages for 1799 that does not have a 1799/8 overdate.
