*NEW* Just picked up this extraordinary Fugio which boasts possibly the sharpest strike I have seen on this issue regardless of grade. Add a flawless chocolate brown planchet and considerable luster and this coin is simply unsurpassable for the grade, better than most residing in MS64 holders and will hold its own against many MS65 examples I have seen. There is a very common die crack from the sun dial down through "Mind Your Business". You will spend the rest of your life finding a better example for the price.
*SOLD - NEW* Extraordinary quality for the grade. Starting with a perfect, problem free planchet, this early half Cent shows a complete, even strike front and back with the reverse design elements fully detailed. This element alone sets it apart from the great majority of the type, which are generally weakly struck, particularly on the reverse. Surfaces are mark free and the color is an even chocolate brown. Perfect for type.
*NEW* Absolutely superb for the grade. Fully struck, with mark free fields and full luster. Even chocolate brown tone overall with an arc of light patina at the right obverse periphery. Exceptional in every way.
*ON HOLD - NEW* Exquisite eye-appeal results from original RED highlights in and around the devices, glowing with luster and contrasting lovely, super clean chocolate brown surfaces. Superb type coin for the grade and price.
*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.
*NEW* 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. Original red in and around all devices front and back give this piece exceptional eye-appeal. A stunning coin and rare variety. Comps on Heritage Auctions show prices realized around $20K plus for NON-CAC coins.
*NEW* Fully struck on both sides and technically flawless, but the standout appeal of this coin is the wonderful, 70% bright original RED coloration that blends beautifully with the bluish brown. Glowing luster finishes this exceptionally eye-appealing Large Cent.
