this is one of the top 5 known


these coins usually do not come like this




maybe 893scratchchin-thumb.gif

a special presentation strike and somehow kept for posterity

and never messed with if this coin was the same condition and surface quality and strike and an early federal mint half cent date it would be into the hundred of thousands of dollars 893whatthe.gif


totally undervalued coins and it looks like a federal issue coin and fully authorized by the commonwealth of massachusettes first coin to use the word half cent and has the heraldic eagle reverse design and standards adopted by the early federal mint


such great value coins with currently little to no demand


no downside and tremendous upside potential oppertunity coins


with a fundamential reason to rise in value and an important extremely historical early american coin


it has everything except collector demand crazy.giffrustrated.gif



no porosity or corrosion an almost perfect planchet


and way above average strike with good centering


in early copper coins surface quality is the most importance this coin is choice++ overall in surface quality

the native american on the obverse of this coin represents the american continent as this symbol representated the new world to old world europe


this indian has been representated on mass colonial currency since the 1680's and on the state seal of mass

this is a ryder 4-c common variety with a late die state from the advanced die break at the indians right foot and has the classic typical 4-c die alignment on the reverse


the preservation of this coin besides being a gem


makes grown men weep shy.gif

As you saw from my other thread, I have a Massachusetts cent that I inherited. I agree that these coins are undervalued, but it seems to me you need to be careful in this line due to fakes.


Where do you buy these coins and how can you be sure they are authentic (if you are more of a novice).


Your coin is awesome. Have you had it long?
