    Wow! Amazing Early Large Cent

    1796 1c PCGS/CAC MS64 BN (Liberty Cap) ex: Eliasberg

    Coins We Love

    On occasion there's just a coin that comes across our desk that can't be described by a word other than "Wow"! This piece is a truly amazing survivor that has not been on the auction block as a graded coin EVER. In fact, it was last seen in 1996 as part of the Eliasberg auction when the coin was uncertified. In fact, on the PCGS CoinFacts, the grade of the coin is estimated as a MS65RB. Regardless of the grade, the coin is indeed a special offering and while there is plenty of reddish-rose tint remaining, the smooth, chocolate surfaces are absolutely pristine.<br />I spoke to John Albanese, President of CAC, about this coin when he saw it and he stated "it's not your typical oily-looking uncirculated Large Cent. This coin is absolutely special and is absolutely amazing. I don't do much in copper, but I love this coin!"&nbsp; <br />As far as the coin goes, the obverse displays an absolutely beautiful luster beneath the light brown skin. The top of the obverse displays a pleasant bluish-pink tint that accentuates LIBERTY and just draws your eye into the color. The reverse is a solid milk chocolate brown with the luster especially noticeable around the rim of the coin. We're proud to offer this absolutely amazing specimen and whether it's part of a large collection that this coin is just another highlight or possibly the only coin that a collector owns, this piece is sure to bring joy when held and viewed in-hand. CAC approved for quality.
