Lot Description
Head of Liberty as on circulating cents of the date but&nbsp;without&nbsp;encircling 13 stars, date below, reverse with continuous laurel wreath UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, ONE / CENT within. Struck in a smaller&nbsp;diameter&nbsp;than the&nbsp;circulating&nbsp;large cents of the era. Sharply to fully struck with pleasingly original toning in a blend of golden-brown and rose-brown. There are no blemishes of note, the outward appearance smooth and not even revealing any worrisome carbon.<br /> <p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 0px; font: normal normal normal 12px/normal helvetica;">Regarding pattern cents, the Hoosier Flyer collection will&nbsp;be showcased in our World&rsquo;s Fair of Money (summer ANA convention)&nbsp; auction. This is a marvelous group illustrating the transition from the large copper&nbsp; cent to the small copper-nickel cent, from 1850 to 1859. Gathered over a period of years by a connoisseur, the offering is truly remarkable and will be long remembered.&nbsp;<br /><br /> <p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 0px; font: normal normal normal 12px/normal helvetica;">This prompts us to mention that as you read these words there is still an opportunity to consign to our World&rsquo;s Fair of Money sale&mdash;including particularly important pieces for our Rarities Night. If tradition continues &ndash; and no doubt it will &ndash; space will become almost as rare as the coins themselves once the deadline appears. Right now there is ample opportunity to contact a consignment director&nbsp; and include your rare coins, tokens, medals or paper money to the sale.<br /><br /> <br class="Apple-interchange-newline" />
