Description & Analysis

Joseph Wright's Liberty Cap Cent of 1793 carried over to the earliest cents dated 1794. Just four die marriages are known for this type, and these are divided into varieties having one of two lettered edge patterns: the "a" variety features a single leaf pointing down at the end of the lettering, while the "b" variety has the leaf pointing up.

All of these varieties are scarce to some degree, with S-18b (photos) being among the ones more often seen. S-17, S-18a and S-19a are rare, while S-17b and S-20a are very rare.
