Saor Alba's 1701-1800 - USA Large Cent 1795, lettered edge variety


Generally I do not collect USA coins, they are a bit of a darkside to me. This is one that I got a call about in the middle of the night, whilst I was waiting at the airport. This piece is one of the very rare lettered edge variety cents that was struck that year, before the mint in Philadelphia gave up on using the collars with the lettered edges and went to plain edges for the remainder of the year. This coin is PCGS AU-55.


elverno's 1800 ¼ Kreutzer, Austria


The Austro-Hungarian Empire stretched across most of Europe during the Napoleonic era. This was one of the tiniest coins produced and is seldom found in this condition. Because the average person was paid in copper, fractional coins such as this allowed someone to buy a meal or some bread without carrying a tempting amount of money around. The fractional copper is almost always found nearly smooth as a result.
