Then I realized there are only 93 graded examples. I hope he appreciates how rare it is.

He turns 8. Just about the age I was when I first got into coin collecting. This is graded and identified as the small eight, small stars variety. Is that correct?

Very nice gift include a write up of the coin's history, rareity, and value as it helps the new collector understand how special the coin is.

Around the same age I was intro'd to coins.

It's important that you make aware, this is a variety.

This could have shaped my collecting goals, if I had known. A very nice starter, btw.

I agree with BigSilver that it is an 1835 with Head of 1836. Actually a common coin. A very nice gift for your nephew and hopefully you planted a seed.

Interesting. I'm not seeing a head of 36. I agree with PCGS's assessment. What attributes are you guys seeing that I'm missing?

I am going by photos on the PCGS website. Go to the PCGS pop. report and pull up the 1835 Large cents. There
are some comparable pictures of the different varieties. I was looking at the 10th and the 13th star in relationship
to the portrait.

Hmmm... definitely looks like a small eight. Not sure about the stars.
