Plain 4, Late Die State Dies, Crusty Chocolate Brown Patina, Accurately Graded, Twin Lakes Collection. . The 1814 Plain 4 Large Cent is scarce in Mint State with no Red-Brown or Red example known for either the Plain or Crosslet 4 die variety. PCGS has only graded twenty-one Plain 4 examples and roughly the same amount in all Mint State grade. GFRC is pleased to be offering an AU58 graded example from the Twin Lakes Collection. This example was struck from late die state dies as noted by the heavy metal flow lines and eroded milling. Die spalling is apparent under Liberty's chin. Surfaces are toned a deep chocolate brown on both sides. An obverse die crack connects the the 8 digit to the lower curls along with star 11. Some faint chatter is seen on the obverse. Housed in old PCGS Gen 4.4 holder with blue label and standard ring insert. The Twin Lakes consignor says sell so offers will be considered.

N-6 Original $225 Matron Head Design, Newcomb-6, Rotated Reverse, Well Struck, Red Coloring, Lakewood Collection. The 1833 Newcomb-6 die pairing is fairly common but the literature does not make mention of a rotated reverse. The GFRC illustration accurately captures the reverse rotation. Original surfaces have limited abrasions. Strike is well executed. Under a light source, luster takes on a satiny texture on both sides. Housed in ANACS gold label holder and please don't let this fact hold back a purchase decision. The Lakewood Collection offerings were carefully assembled but with a collector decision to employ ANACS for grading. Reasonable priced for a quick sale.

Choice $425 Choice Original, Feuchtwanger Token, Woodlands Collection. A choice example of the one cent Feuchtwanger token. Just a touch of rub on the obverse eagle's shoulder is visible. A very well struck example with crisp eagles feathers. Wikipedia provides an explanation on why Feuchtwanger tokens were struck and circulated during the "Hard Times". The Feuchtwanger Cent was a "German Silver" private token coin circulated by Lewis Feuchtwanger during the 1830-40s in the U.S. Three cent varieties were also available, though not as plentiful as the one cent tokens. The tokens were originally created as patterns to demonstrate a new type of metal for coinage, however when these proposals failed, they were temporarily used by the public during depressions to accommodate a small change shortage.
