Art1.2 1A2#1


1848 US Large Cent with a combination of pre-strike planchett damage and minor corrosion that was post-mint damage. Overall it's a beautiful coin (my opinion) but a fine example of both types of damage on a single surface.

Art1.2 1A2#2


1840 US Large Cent - The blue background color that you can see at the edges of this coin is accurate. Coin is discolored and has many surface scratches and is quite porous probably from being buried in the ground for a considerable period of time.

Art1.2 1A2#3


1858 Flying Eagle Cent - small letters variety. The coin has suffered corrosion. The corrosion is evenly distributed on the surface and effects both the obverse and reverse. I believe the coin must have been buried in the soil for an extended period of time with all surfaces coming into contact with evenly moist soil and no major obstructions. Overall a very nice example of this beautiful series. This coin is graded by ANACS as EF net VF20. I agree with the grading.
