*NEW* An exquisite piece, probably the best I have seen and have been buying and selling these for around 35 years. I have no idea why this coin is not graded MS65. Very sharply struck with perfect surfaces and lovely chocolate brown color with red tinges. Keep in mind this is a Farthing, not a Halfpenny…half the size, but about 5X scarcer. Pop of only 25 in MS64 with 2 grading MS65 Superb for type.
*NEW* Pretty much of a twin to the farthing. Extraordinarily sharp strike on an issue that is often weak and mushy. Hard, almost semi-PL surfaces and finished with lovely dark chocolate brown color. The photo does not do this justice as the few minor darker spots of toning that appear so vividly on the photograph are barely noticeable in hand. Superb.
*ON HOLD - NEW* Fully struck on both sides with even chocolate brown patina and no spots or distractions and strong, complete luster. Absolute top of the grade and probably net graded down for a tiny clip at the top, virtually unnoticeable. A stronger clip would have made this coin an “error” and increased its value. With CU Price Guide at $3900, this coin is a great deal.
*NEW* Very well detailed with a strong, even strike front and back. Some light porosity accounts for the VF30 grade as the details are closer to XF. Even chocolate brown color and a great look overall.
*NEW* Very well impressed front and back with all design details sharp. Perfectly centered with full denticals on both sides. Lovely chocolate brown with flashes of original red in and around the lettering and portrait. Distraction free.
Needle sharp strike and superb surfaces are just the beginning of this fabulous Coronet Cent. A gorgeous blend of brown with violets and blues blend together to give this sparkling piece extraordinary Eye-appeal. Finished with glowing luster. Gorgeous type coin.
*Aspen Park Collection - HT-195, Portsmouth MA* Very choice uncirculated specimen of this Massachusetts Store Card. Even deep chocolate brown with considerable original RED in and around the lettering on both sides. Pop: 2-62, 3-63, 4-64, 0-65, 1-66.
A phenomenal Large Cent and among the best I have seen for ANY date. Fully struck on both sides with flawless fields and full luster over even chocolate brown patina.
