But what if that's not the case? I have two coins which MAY be gripped edges on varieties which aren't supposed to have them. One is a scuzzy S-95 of 1796 and the other is a S-156 of 1798. These seem far too distant in time to have been produced in a batch of gripped edge cents. But they all have something in common which might indicate they were produced around the same time. They are all on Reverse of 95 Reverses. Now here are pictures so you can decide for yourselves whether they are Gripped edges or dings. I can say they would probably insure attribution as a gripped edge if it were on the S-120 or S-121. Here they are: S-95 S-121 Edge shown below with... S-156 Am I on to something or is it all about nothing?
