Art Posted June 15, 2005 Report Share Posted June 15, 2005 As you may recall, I've ventured into US Large Cents as a main focus for my collection. I had just started to post some info on the coins that I've been purchasing when the old site went away. So they're back. First Large Cent for my collection -- It's a Late Date cent. Large Cent collectors break the coins down into three catagories, Early Dates 1793-1814, Middle Dates 1816-1839, and Late Dates 1840-1857. 1843 N6 MDS F12/8 As I learn more about what all of the different designations really mean, I'll update this. N6 = Newcomb 6 that's the variety as described by Newcomb in his book. This is a "very common" variety. MDS = Middle Die State F12/8 = the grade of the coin. This is EAC grading. The coin's grade is F12 but because of scratches and recoloring its net grade is 8. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
