An Opportunity I Couldn't Pass Up

Coins | coinsbygary

I wasn't looking to buy this 1835 Half-Cent piece, but I came across it searching e-bay listings and couldn't pass it up. Fortunately, the coin it replaces in my collection was targeted for an eventual upgrade. In the new piece I get exceptional color and a very strong strike. In other words this coin has exceptional eye appeal. It also fits my plans to add the best looking coins for the price I can afford into my 7070 Type set.

This Coin Completes the Half-Cent Portion of My Collection

Coins-United States | coinsbygary

The NGC Collectors Society Dansco 7070 Type Set has slots for the Draped Bust Half-Cent (1800-1808), the Classic Head Half-Cent (1809-1835), and the Coronet Half-Cent (1849-1857). Since I already own the Draped Bust and Classic Head Half-Cents, all I needed was the Coronet Half-Cent to complete my set. That was until today when the piece pictured in this post arrived in the mail. With the half-cent portion of my collection complete I intend to focus on nice large cents for my collection.
