    That's a great example of super nice surface quality and minimal distracting circulation marks. Where did it sell?

    $717.77 If you want nice stuff, you gotta pony up I suppose.

    I was thinking about it when the bidding was $450-500... but then deeper pockets soon took over...

    Yes, you have to be a lucky bidder or have the deep pockets.
    That is one great looking coin.

    Beautiful example lkenefic. Love the large cents of 1839.
    Here's one I bought a few years ago.

  • rickoricko Posts: 98,724 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That is a very nice large cent.... and the price certainly supports it. Cheers, RickO

    1839 is a great year for large cents due to the number of major varieties that year.
