i havent positively identified it yet but I can say with certainty that this is not a 1799. on a 1799 the the T in liberTy would be counterclockwise of its location here. the right edge of the T aligns with the brow lock on all three 1799 varieties.
edit to add:
im fairly certain its a 1798. I think it is one of the varieties in the 160-170 range but I dont know. 161 and 162 seem most similar so far.
the stems and how they point to the U and the A, the highest leaf under the second S in stateS and the brow locks relation to the T in liberTy combine to rule out all of the 1796 and 1797 varieties. also most of the 1798s.
i like large cents. I currently have >225 Sheldon varieties and >235 middle date Newcomb varieties.
