    This was properly attributed and I still managed to pick it up for $105.

    I believe this is 1802 NC-1 Die State II. The progression of the crack doesn't quite match up with Breen with the nub right of 2 appearing (III) before the crack is evident from the rim through b to the hair (II) on many recent finds of state II.

    Large Cent guys amaze me with their dedication and excitment. I really like reading these.

    I received this coin today and tried to take a close up that is a little less blurry. I was interested to see if the nub right of 2 showed any signs of being caused by PMD. Ot does not appear to be so. Wed Aug 28 10-11-04.jpg

    I just picked this up. Now all I need is the S-90 to complete my rare 96 Liberty Caps.

    It's not pretty, but Identification diagnostics are strong.

    Obverse with a straight date and distant 6 is certainly Obverse 3.

    The Reverse stems of the inner (O) and outer leaves (I) are either together or close.

    I’m late to the party, but I have to commend you for snagging an NC for just over $100. Even though it appears to have been downgraded to an R5+ (and maybe more appropriately called “now collectible” instead of “non collectible), it’s still awesome to own an NC. It looks to be in pretty decent condition despite the fact that it circulated for many decades!

    This is not very rare, but a nice example of a S-234 middle die state. I also need some less rare varieties as the rare ones are filled in.

    I went to our local coin club show this weekend. I haven’t bought any large cents in quite a while. One of the dealers had these three beauties that caught my attention. All are plain edged, have serious problems and just aren’t what most people collect. The best part was the price, I got all three for under $25 apiece.

    You bought a fugio for under $25?

    Technically, he had $39 on the fugio, $28 on the 1795 and $18 on the 1796. We settled for $73 for all 3 coins.

    Still a super price for a fugio.

    Wonderful pick ups.

    First is a S-76b with good detail despite the damage.

    Second is Obverse 1, but no way to determine whether it's S-81 or S-82.

    Of course the third being a fugio.

    I hope you got the dealer's card.

    The dealer is a member of our local club. He deals with more high end material and these he picked up in a collection he bought I was the first person at his booth and I was in the right place at the right time.

    I can't afford to add to my collection right now, but I coudn't afford to pass on this one. $7.50 plus $4.99 shipping.

    This is why I love attributing dateless coins.
