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:
https://www.pcgs.com/setregistry/alltimeset/289692

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.

    Catbert,

    Thanks so much for posting that video link! I will save that to my folder for the history of the coin.

    Also thanks to all the others for their kind comments.

    I am by no means an EAC expert. Actually my whole collection in that area is what you see in the referenced registry set. When I was a young collector I used to go for quantity over quality. Now in my "old age", I believe in quality first.

    Just checked your registry and that Pogue 1808 is amazing. I recognize it from Naftzger.

    Thanks. I am proud of it and probably will never be able to find (afford) any other coin for my collection at that level. I am in a quandary as to how to handle the first 2 examples needed for the type set. A 12 for the Chain and a 40 for the Wreath is about as high of a grade as I am willing to spend for but they will not quite match up with the rest of the set.

    Personally, I would not give this even a moment of consideration. This is a fabulous, world class set, and a choice Chain and Wreath in those grades is, at the very least, wonderful!

    What was the EAC seller’s grade of this beauty?

  • Options
    hbarbeehbarbee Posts: 169 ✭✭✭

    The last time it appeared in auction at Heritage (they usually post their version of the EAC grade for early copper), they pegged it at MS60. The seller tended to agree. For the other early pieces in the set, the 1797 is also considered MS60 and the 1808 is at MS63. Of course, an EAC grade is a slippery thing to get a hold of. That is why I want them in a PCGS holder so that we at least have a market grade as a reference. But if you can get most EAC folks to agree that a coin is at least MS60, then I would consider it a nice piece.

    I have seen EAC grades with the grader’s name as part of the description. Kinda cool to me.
    My favorite copper guy will include PCGS and NGC grades, from the crack outs, inside his yellow paper flips.

    Once again, beautiful coin.

    What a beauty! If you send the coin back to CAC along with the pics from the Heritage auction, I don’t think you’ll have any problem getting it re-stickered :)

    A real plus here is that you can trace the coin's pedigree to the old holder, so you know it's stable. Hammered strike. Have no idea why whomever didn't leave it in its original holder.
