Ron Guth:

Sheldon 67 is one of the later varieties struck in 1794. The head punch used to create the obverse die was a new one designed by John Gardner, then the assistant to the chief engraver, Robert Scot This variety belongs to a small group known as the "Heads of 1795" though, technically, there is no 1795 Large Cent that has a head quite like this (the "exact" Head of 1795 is Sheldon 72, which also sported a head punch by Gardner).

Sheldon 67 is rated as Rarity 3 (scarce), though it is fairly easy to obtain in circulated grades. The finest examples include three (yes, three) coins from the Lord St. Oswald Collection, all of which were acquired in or shortly after the year of issue (two of those coins are Red-Brown, which is an amazing state of preservation for copper Large Cents that are over two centuries old).

At the lower end, the Condition Census for this variety drops all the way down to EF45.
