Cleaned $350 Draped Bust Type, Old Clean, Retoned, Southern Texas Collection. A piece of numismatic history from an era of TPG company proliferation and questionable grading standards. Exhibit A is this 1806 Small 6, No Stem half cent with bold device details. A 10x loupe inspection promptly revealed hairlines and faint porosity along with a retoned coloring that is close to natural for those without sufficient early copper experience.

N-7 Choice $925 Large Letters Reverse, Well Struck, Choice Surfaces, Ideal Coronet Head Type Coin. Adding early U.S. copper to the price list requires well above average eye appeal to be at hand. In other words, I must like an early copper piece to the point of desire for my own collection. That is a high bar and the case with this enchanting 1831 large cent. Though having a Brown designation, the reverse is close to full Red while the obverse has orange and violet shades. Strike is essentially complete with only a few stars lacking full definition. Surfaces are free of abrasions. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the mid 1990s timeframe with pristine reverse hologram. CAC approval is warranted. The NGC label captures the attribution with "Large Letters, N-7".
