Denis Loring: There are nine die varieties of Wreath cents with Vine and Bars edge. NC-5 is unique, in the collection of the American Numismatic Society. NC-4 is a high R-7, with five known. Of the "numbered" varieties, only S-7 is rare. This "stopper" is unobtainable in high grade: only one in collectors' hands is above Fine. S-5, with LIBERTY and the date in large characters, is widely considered the most esthetically appealing of the Wreath cents.
