AU53 PCGS
18269156
Choice $625 Choice for Draped 1/2 Cent Type, Chocolate Brown Coloring, Satiny Luster. Adding early copper to the GFRC price list is proving to be an enjoyable exercise. This 1806 Small 6, No Stems example brings rich chocolate coloring and smooth fields as its main highlights. Reverse die is heavily eroded leading to weakness at the legend. Typical verdigris surrounds the wreath leaves. A solid example that would fill the Draped Bust slot in a type set. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with Small 6, No Stems attribution on the label.

S-223 Original $800 New October 21! 1/000, Obverse Cuds, Smooth Planchet, Even Brown, Some Verdigris, Osprey Collection. Electoral challenges date back to the early days of the United States. During 1801, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr were tied in the electoral college during Presidential election. We know who ultimately won! This 1/000 Sheldon-223 was struck that year. Fairly graded with a smooth planchet. Overall coloring is natural brown with some shade variations on the obverse that my camera insists on capturing. Obverse cud at LIBE(RT)Y is bold. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. Label reads 1/000 S-223. From the Osprey Collection.

S-295 Original $2650 Classic Head Type, Near Choice, Durham Eagle Collection. The last piece in the ultra-challenging Sheldon large cent variety set, the 1814 S-295 is distinguished by the absence of a crosslet in the 4. Die crumbling underneath Liberty's throat caused Sheldon to name this the "breaded variety." The present example is deeply toned with hints of evergreen in the central areas, while remaining luster is evident around the stars and reverse legend. Housed in a newer NGC holder.
