I travelled for work this week and ended up getting this 1793 Large cent in the mail. Thought to check with y'all if it's legit and what grade?

D=27.3mm
W=12.81g

Cheers!

The correct dimensions are 27mm and 13.48 grams. You would have to consult an expert for authenticity as specs had high variances in those early days, but even if it was real, would you want to own this coin in your collection? The 1793 wreath cent is the more common of the 1793 issues. I would throw this fish back in the ocean.

The price was right and I don't already own one. It will look great in my Dansco if it's legit. Besides, the return policy is based on authenticity. Thanks!

I feel like I'm staring at myself 5 years ago. Those who were around back then may know what I am talking about. My suggestion would be to look for a nice problem-free coin.

How about something like this? This is a very knowledgeable dealer.

With this one you cannot see the reverse design. The obverse is clear though.

This one is a little more but you can see the reverse design clearly. It is still a details coin, but not a cull like the coin you showed.

To each their own. I would purchase this coin if it was at the right price.

To answer the original question, it looks genuine and I'd give it a G-4 Details grade.
