1793 Cent Varieties
The 1793 Cent has three distinct varieties: The Chain Cent, the Wreath Cent, and the Strawberry Leaf Cent.
The “Strawberry leaf” is quickly identified by the leaves on the obverse, above the date, which are distinctively different from the leaves found on the other obverse dies of this type. Identified as “strawberry leaves” (somewhat disputed but generally accepted by the numismatic community), the reason for their existence are not known.
Extremely rare with only four examples known, all in well-worn condition, this coin is one of the great rarities of US numismatics.
