Ron Guth: Bruce Morelan, in an interview with PCGS in 2016, spoke about his PCGS MS65 example: “The 1801 is a coin that has great attributes to it. It has full flowing luster, beautiful toning, again, it's from the Newman Collection. The only drawback to the coin is that it does have some album sliding friction on the cheek. So it has a few hairlines on the cheek, but the balance of the coin definitely overcomes the slight drawbacks to the coin. If you were going to look at the coin from arm's length, you'd likely say, “Oh, oh my god, this coin's fantastic,” so I definitely enjoy the coin.”
