As Stack's Bowers Galleries prepares to sell thousands of lots in the Spring 2022 Showcase Auction, of particular interest is this high-grade original 1849 large cent. Graded by PCGS as Proof-65 RB, CAC, this coin has spent time in some impressive collections, including the Anderson-Dupont Collection, Naftzger Collection, and most recently the Dan Holmes Collection. There is a single finer coin at PCGS, graded with Proof 65+. At CAC there are no finer coins known. This coin will be a great addition to any collection.​
