1788 Massachusetts Cent. Ryder 2-B R3+ F/VF
Ryder 2-B, R3+. Intriguing piece with striated planchet giving it a nice woodgrain appearance, the reverse a strong VF for detail, the obverse a bit more subdued. Planchet crack at about 7:30 affecting both sides. Hard steel to light russet color, cleaned at some point. Very attractive!
