Owner Comments:

Tim at Folsom Coin in Folsom CA had this in his display for all of 2 weeks when I saw it. Just hearing his price and seeing the front of the coin and holder caused me to say "I'll take it". To which he said would you like to see the back? This is one of the very few problem free classic head cents I have come across. Nice even brown surfaces with no granularity or pitting whatsoever. There is slight variation in color across the coin, but this is not due to damage, harsh environment or molestation, simply the copper.So rare are these that I decided to see how long ago this one had passed through the hands of the mighty borg of the coin world (Heritage). It had indeed been there in 2006. And as for why I was so fast to say "I'll take it", I payed less in December of 2009 that the auction price of 2006.
