Early Large Cents Rumble in the PCGS Set Registry Exhibition at the Central States

Two of the most celebrated collectors of early large cent varieties are Colonel Steven K. Ellsworth and Walter J. Husak, both of whom are longtime numismatists with broad name recognition in the hobby. Both gentlemen were avid collectors by their middle-school years, and both — decades on — have built extensive collections of large cents, in some cases buying them from each other at various points to fill gaps in their respective sets. While dear friends going way back, they’re rolling their sleeves up for some friendly competition at the Central States Numismatic Show in Schaumburg, Illinois, held April 27-30, 2022, where the two are submitting several of their large cents for a head-to-head matchup in the proverbial numismatic boxing ring.
