    (the him being my brother)
    If it's just a good copy, I might just plain kill him...
    he's sending me some "copper bits" from Pepe's boxes... He said they are just odds and ends pepe had stuck aside in a little ring box and nothing that interests him at this time..
    I swear he loves to do crap like this to me,
    Looking forward to a goodie box sometime next week :D
    90% sure it's just a nice if old copy :D lol...

    Not a real Fugio cent, looks like an old copy but far from 1787 old. Real Fugio cents have somewhat crude denticles, and this is far too neat and of the wrong nature.

    Reminds me of this one: I will Love him and squeeze him and call him George. And if he misbehaves, I will punish him and stroke his fur the wrong way.

    Yeah, it's definitely a copy, but at least it looks nice....it's almost impossible to find a real one struck so well. Here is one we have in MS64....clashed dies, rusted, worn out. But now that they are considered Americas first Cent, we've definitely seen the prices climb!

    I believe that is an older copy that you showed, but it's still cool to have for free!

    Here is my example. I was lucky to win it at the beginning of 2020 before prices got significantly higher. Even with the clip, its exceptionally attractive for a Fugio with essentially none of the typical unsightly planchet streaking.

    The "wipe away" patina is what attracted my attention 1st:D...

    That is so true. I won this in a Heritage auction January, 2020 for $1920 including the vig. At the time Graysheet was $1600. My coin is probably a Bank of New York Hoard coin.

    Today, Graysheet is $3000 and PCGS Price Guide shows it at $3250. And looking at the pricing history, most of this gain occurred in the last year so yes, probably most of the gain is attributable to the redesignation as the first official circulating coin issue of the United States of America. A finding that I wholeheartedly support, BTW.

    Here's the link to the research article if you're interested.
