1793 Large Cent Chain Reverse Value Facts
One year, one mintage, and this is an extremely rare and valuable coin. The value begins at $5,500 and continues to climb from there.
Note that when I mention a grade like G4 that means the coin is problem free – never cleaned, not pitted, or damaged in any way. If the coin has a “grainy” appearance or seems to have tiny holes, or scratches, or looks “pinkish” then it’s a problem coin and will sell for less than the values listed.
You also have three conditional factors that determine the value of a Flowing Hair, Chain Reverse, Large Cent and they are: Red (RD), RB (Red-Brown), BN (Brown). A RD coin is going to have at least 90% original luster as struck by the mint and is the most valuable condition. The luster conditions only apply to mint state coins so any circulated coin will be designated BN.
