I need to firstly determine the above info. before sending it over to grading.

I keep going back and forth between an 8 and 9 for the last digit.

And on another note here are the PCGS shots of both the 1st and 2nd hairstyle dates of which we may or may not be able to ascertain because of the CoinFacts' focus on the hair curl; it would be nice, however, to know this...:

It is a type II hair, and It is a 98. On both 1799 obv's the hwh at the top of the head is to the right of the center of the R. On this coin it is just a little right of the upright so it is too far left.

The images of the date from Coinfacts is misleading. Those show examples of the large and small 8 but there are large and small 8's on both type I and type II hair coins.

I bought this as a 1798. It looks a lot like yours.

100% 1798. I can spot that smaller upper loop on the 8 from a mile away.
