    Wow! Amazing Early Large Cent

    1796 1c PCGS/CAC MS64 BN (Liberty Cap) ex: Eliasberg

    Coins We Love
    $175,000.00
     

    On occasion there's just a coin that comes across our desk that can't be described by a word other than "Wow"! This piece is a truly amazing survivor that has not been on the auction block as a graded coin EVER. In fact, it was last seen in 1996 as part of the Eliasberg auction when the coin was uncertified. In fact, on the PCGS CoinFacts, the grade of the coin is estimated as a MS65RB. Regardless of the grade, the coin is indeed a special offering and while there is plenty of reddish-rose tint remaining, the smooth, chocolate surfaces are absolutely pristine.<br />I spoke to John Albanese, President of CAC, about this coin when he saw it and he stated "it's not your typical oily-looking uncirculated Large Cent. This coin is absolutely special and is absolutely amazing. I don't do much in copper, but I love this coin!"&nbsp; <br />As far as the coin goes, the obverse displays an absolutely beautiful luster beneath the light brown skin. The top of the obverse displays a pleasant bluish-pink tint that accentuates LIBERTY and just draws your eye into the color. The reverse is a solid milk chocolate brown with the luster especially noticeable around the rim of the coin. We're proud to offer this absolutely amazing specimen and whether it's part of a large collection that this coin is just another highlight or possibly the only coin that a collector owns, this piece is sure to bring joy when held and viewed in-hand. CAC approved for quality.


    Rare Near-Gem

    1821 1c PCGS MS64 RB

    Coins We Love
    $44,000.00
     

    Gorgeous remaining red tints in the obverse fields with bright golden red reverse surfaces. One of the finest in existence for this key date in the middle Large Cent years, a few scattered spots account for the color designation, but we have seen darker, less attractive pieces designated as "Red" in recent years. Tied with 2 other pieces at PCGS as the finest graded.

    $105,000.00
     

    This coin is as fresh as pineapple in Hawaii! Amazingly clean fields with stunning originality, this coin was freshly graded from a collection put together in the early 1900s. A truly special piece, I would put it up against the other examples graded similarly as possibly the nicest overall. It is also the finest graded of the variety O-115a, but we'll leave all of that aside and just state it as an extremely special coin that is deserving of all of the attention it might get.
