1796 Large Cent S-89
Medium to dark brown. A very pleasing '96 cap, that's just a trace rough under a high-powered glass. Ex: H. Craig Hamling, Rod Burress, and comes with Rod's envelope. A notation on the envelope states "Better than the plate coin on p.60 of 5th edition of ANA grading standards". Called VG8+, and also 7 net 5, nearly choice, possibly in Craig's handwriting, not sure. Scarce at R3. Tough to find these 1796s nice like this.
From the Charles J. Walters Jr. Collection.
