LOT 37 1798 S-180 R5- Small 8 with Style II Hair AG3. A few points sharper but covered with microscopic roughness mixed with a few small pits, some of which contain light green verdigris. Fine hairline scratches show on both sides and there are a half dozen ticks in the field over the bust. The date is weak but readable and most of the legends are clear. LDS with two cud breaks on the reverse: one over TATE and another at UN.

LOT 34 1798 S-176 R4 Small 8 with Style II Hair G5. Glossy medium brown and light chocolate. Smooth and quite nice for the grade. The only marks are a thin nick in the hair left of the eye and a spot of darker chocolate brown toning in the field off the chin. E-MDS. The date is bold and the legends are readable.
