1793 Wreath Cent

Gem Mint State 1793 Wreath Cent, the Next Million Dollar Cent, Acquired by Tom Pilitowski

Port Charlotte, FL June 26, 2014 – US Rare Coin Investments has acquired an historic and significant 1793 Gem Mint State Vine and Bars Wreath Cent, S-9, B-12. Finding a Gem Wreath Cent is rather remarkable since they are usually seen in low grades with numerous problems. This outstanding one is certified MS65 BN by PCGS and also comes with a CAC (Collectors Acceptance Corp) approval sticker. The coin has spectacular eye-appeal. Its light brown and olive surfaces are splashed with bits of mint red in some of the protected areas. There is also a small area of darker patina on the reverse at ATES. The boldly struck design motifs are well centered on hard, reflective fields. The dentils are complete and strong on both sides. The few marks that appear on both sides were probably on the planchet before the coin was struck.

In its population report, PCGS shows one Wreath Cent, S-9, the present coin in MS65 BN condition with one finer at MS65+BN. (PCGS also list a Wreath Cent at MS69BN, which was auctioned as an S-9 variety.) At NGC the finest S-9 in their Consensus is an MS62 BN piece. As of June 2014, the present coin is the finest and only specimen confirmed by CAC at the Gem MS65 BN grade level.


Very Truly Yours,
