Description & Analysis

The mintage of cents dated 1798 was quite large, as shown in the figure above, which includes those coined during 1799. There are dozens of die marriages for this date, and three of these are overdates covered in a separate entry.

Of the others, three have the Reverse of 95 with a single leaves at the top of the wreath. The remaining marriages come with the normal, double-leaf wreath and one of two obverse styles: That known as First Hair (S-144 through S-164) has no additional curl on the Liberty portrait, while the Second Hair subtype (S-165 through S-187) has the extra curl, as on the S-167 example illustrated.

Of the non-overdate varieties, the following are rare: S-144, -146, -147, -149, -156, NC-1, NC-2 (all First Hair), -177, -178, -180 and -183 (all Second Hair).
