Addition to Large Cent Type Set
Recently added the next example to my PCGS Large Cent Type Set. The 1795 came from a well respected EAC numismatist I met recently at an early copper event. He is one of the nicest guys you would ever hope to chat with about the hobby.
The current set can be reviewed at:
The 1808 will remain the crown jewel, but the 1795 fits in nicely.
One thing interesting about this coin was that it was in a Gen 1.2 holder (1986-89) at MS63BN with green CAC at a couple of Heritage auctions and for some reason it was cracked it out and resubmitted sometime in 2015-20 and now is in a Gen 6.0 holder at the same grade but without CAC. That seems to have been a bad decision. I would love for it to be the way it was, but I suspect it could earn the sticker again if resubmitted.
I have included the TrueView (not as nice as in hand) as well as both PCGS holders.
Would appreciate any comments from the EAC community or anyone who enjoys early large cents. The EAC grade should be MS60.
