Nah, probably just liberated from someone's collection

I'd guess the same as Jlueke -- somehow escaped from a collection. It's a nice looking cent.

Hi,

Depending upon where you are, some dealers still do coin drops as they used to be called. Sometimes they circulate a few nice coins to build up some interest in the geographical areas around coin shows. Also, some folks will take a coin like that to a local dealer if they don't know what the value is. Then the dealer might have a new potential customer.

Less common nowadays but still done on occasion. I just thought I'd mention that possibility.

Have Fun,Bill

There are also people who lose a spouse or whatever and pack the whole coin collection off to the bank. What a tragedy....

 

Let's not talk about the divorce thing. A friend of mine who has a small dealership just went through that. UGLY@@@@@
