I have been waiting for years.... finally found my 1841 Large Cent....love at first sight.
This has now turned in to a memorable week in my numismatic life. As if purchasing my first Carson City coin wasn't enough I finally found an 1841 Large Cent for my core collection. It has been quite a while since I have been so excited, I am literally shaking. This coin showed up on Ebay tonight and there were already quite a few people watching it. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to pounce!! I have looked at literally thousands of 1841 Large Cents. They all look like crap. I still remember the one that got away from CRO...a PCGS MS62 CAC that I hesitated for 20 minutes and it was gone.
Well tonight I hesitated for 20 seconds before hitting the BIN button. Mark free...spot free....great color....a perfect PCGS AU55.
Let me know your thoughts about this coin. I am including a picture of the space holder I had as well. No need to upgrade this tough date again
