It looks like a 1793 to me, the first year of issue. A great find worth $2000 plus depending on which variety.......:clapping:



Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

if any of you know a conservator that you know and trust I guess I have to ask if you could send his or her name along to Me.

There are a few varieties. Show us a picture of the back.

I will put some pictures up when I get home the front is in better shape than the back but looking at it it appeared to look just like other large cents

What a monster find! 1793 Liberty Cap large cents are extremely rare. Can't tell from the photo, but if it's one of the varieties with the "dotted I" instead of the 2 dots over the I than you have a real rarity. After going out yesterday and finding a seated half, seated quarter and a draped bust large cent I go out today and find another seated quarter, an 1873 Indian and a half real only to be blown out of the water by what you found. Your 1793 Cent is one of the best copper finds I know of with the only thing I can readily think of exceeding it is a really nice 1787 Indian Obverse/Eagle on Globe reverse colonial I saw about 15 years ago. 1793 Liberty Caps are rarer than Chain or Wreath cents. GREAT FIND! Congratulations.
