Copper Guys, post an example with choice surfaces!

ashelandasheland Posts: 22,572 ✭✭✭✭✭

I am slowly gaining interest in earlier copper, I would like to see some pictures of choice original surfaces. Preferably brown, but all color designations are welcome in this thread…

Also, I prefer to see 1793 to 1857 pieces, but others are OK. I would just like to see some choice original surfaces.

    Wow - some beautiful coins! Loving the flyers and the clashed reverse 1880 IHC, in particular. :+1:

    Here are 2 decent coins that I have. Now, if you start a thread on copper coins with very poor surfaces I could help out more!
    I have quite a few that I bought before I joined this forum and learned a bit more about what coins to buy.

    Shiny things distract me.

    or, if you prefer brown in that date, 1837 N-9

    Perfect brown? Here it is! /\
