Will the seller get offended is someone offers 1/10th of 1%?

Probably considering a small date in 60 is worth close to that and this is in a 66 slab.

I remember this guy. "It is vastly underrated in the tiny brainwashed subculture of aging hardcore coin dealers and collectors, who in our opinion have no clue about its true value and significance."

At least he spelled "its" correctly.

The PCGS number lookup page shows a PCGS value of $9,500 for this coin - pretty far away from the Million he wants.

If he has other items listed it may be designed to get other people to look at his listings, i.e. click bait.

I like the coin, of course, but the price is a shot in the wind. Made us look...

An NGC MS66BN just sold on eBay for ~$2K, so methinks the seller on this one is a wee bit off.

I love me some 1857 large cents (I have about 10 of them), but that ask is, shall we say, "optimistic".
