    Description

    PCGS 1838 PR 64 Brown. Breen estimates a mintage of about 12 pieces. This is a very pleasing example of this rare issue. What a challenge it would be to assemble a collection of coins which were rare not based on current statistical reports, but rather by original mint data. Collections prior to the onslaught of the grading services were assembled purely by the tastes of the individual collector. Today this is still true to a point, but many now insist on knowing a coin's population as well as how many might be graded finer. One thing the true collector knows is that coins such as this 1838 cent have always been rare and always will be rare. There will never be the fear that several bags were just discovered! We are sure this lot will find a new home in a true collector's cabinet where it will be cherished over the years. Enjoy. (NGC ID# 6M7X, PCGS# 1811)
