    Yes, I saw it as soon as I received the catalog with the piece on the cover. It’s been exhibited at some FUN shows in the non competitive category which probably means few people took the time to look at it.

    Pretty amazing looking gem. That would be noteworthy in anyone's collection (pretty much stating the obvious I guess.)

    Have not seen in person, but its simply stunning based on the photo's, would be a good match to my 1794, problem is, this one is not in my budget!!!

    That is a beautiful Chain Cent.... I still hope to find one of those in the old stone houses/foundations in this historical area (Yes, there are houses here from the late 1600's and on). Cheers, RickO

    I love the EAC 55 grade! This Chain set is going to bring some decent money no matter what the “grade”.

    Gorgeous.

    Beautiful example!

    I could sell off my house and get this astounding coin - but then it would be hard living under a Chain Cent!

    I wish Heritage would twirl the coin around in the video, in hand. That would really show it off!

    I am not normally a fan of the Chain Cent, but this one is definitely a beauty!

    Dream coin for this type set collector. IMO pretty much unimprovable. Thanks for showing.

    I've seen that coin when it was featured in a coin show exhibit, and I've held that coin in hand raw. In hand, it looks far better than the TrueView even shows!! It simply sparkles with incredible luster.

    How would you compare it with the other specimen? Have you seen that one?

    Well, the grades are compared in the listing.

    private, please tell me you are NOT on it!! $2 million is a bit crazy for this market.

    If I could get 20yr terms I might be able to swing it.Make that 50

  • @specialist said:

    no Im not on it. I think the coin is undergraded compared to all the other PCGS 65s out there. Easily 65 RB. Whats the value of a 65 RB Ameri Chain Cent ?

  • its a problem a bit with the grades again, this coin is 64 for scratches but unc. - some other PCGS 65 are not unc.

  • maybe 1.5 Million is the right number.

    How do you interpret the meaning of this sentence? Does he mean Dr. Sheldon would have offered a price he couldn't turn down, or something more sinister?

    He never showed it to Dr. Sheldon as he feared the coin would be "gone."

    Love the personal story. How many of us take notes like this for our coins?

    Alan Weinberg's Commentary. Acquired privately from Ted Naftzger at my kitchen table at 4 P.M. on New Year's Eve 1996. We were both going out that evening. Ted had called me as a direct result of my classified ad in Penny Wise for nice Chain cents. We had not known each other beforehand. He drove out from Beverly Hills in an old beatup station wagon. Ted told me he had acquired this coin in 1947 from Tom Elder's son-in-law and vest pocket dealer, Paul Seitz, for $1,000. He never showed it to Dr. Sheldon as he feared the coin would be "gone." He told me he actually favored it over the brown, lustreless but somewhat prooflike Parmelee AMERI. sold to Streiner, which is slabbed SP65. Ted quoted me a price I could not immediately afford and I moved it back across the table to him. He pocketed it. We chatted for an hour and then, out of the blue, he offered "terms." Two years to pay. I'll take it. We shook hands and he departed. Wait a minute Ted, don't you want something on paper. No, I trust you. Ted was like that, having once mailed an Uncirculated 1793 half cent in a first class mail envelope as he wanted to avoid post office lines. Two years later he sold me at my same kitchen table his ex-Garrett AMERI. cud cent in this same auction with "terms." Perhaps the most rewarding classified ad in numismatic history! Two superb Chain AMERI. cents from one tiny ad.

    Quite possibly something more nefarious...based upon history

    That's what I'm saying, too. Don't get me wrong, I've held coins like that worth hundreds of thousands in my hands in awe, and they were fun to look at and all, but...

    When the text is shifted to the right, you have to put the sticker on the left, otherwise the text is covered.

    Definitely a beautiful coin. The lady liberty on that coin doesn't appear to be 'in a fright'.. :D

    The other thing is that with cheaper, circulated coins, you can literally hold the coin which gives a different feel.

    I think both kinds of coins are great.

    Well, this forum loves to overlook the obvious and go straight to the explanation with more drama.
