I can't ID this Sheldon with confidence, there isn't much left of this coin. I can't even say it is genuine.

It's a 17XX Draped bust, it has type 2 hair which makes it one of about half of the 198 varieties, or a 1799. I don't see the diagnostic die chip on the back so it isn't 1799 S-189, and I can eliminate some of the 98's but that is as far as I can get. The OP calls it the S-188 withthe broken die, but I don't see the die breaks that come on the late stage S-188.

Or it spent 200 years in the ground, and then somebody cleaned it.

with jacrispies that is classic ground corrosion effect on the coin. It's been buried for over a quarter of a century at least maybe a lot more.

Might be a rare 1799/8 cent but it probably isn't.
If you are confident in your identification why not send it to ANACS? Presumably they could authenticate and certify it, despite the horrible condition.
