I snagged this coin in the Heritage Auction on Thursday in Chicago. Finest known, ex. Norweb, ex. Belzberg. It is one of the coins in the auction that has no visible evidence that it was ever played with. I am quite happy to be its caretaker for the next several years.

The auction was interesting. I think every lot sold, even the cleaned coins. Prices were reasonably firm, with the exception of the 1911 dollar, the 1936 dot ten cent, and a few other very expensive coins.

Like you said, it has a beautiful cameo exceptional
toning, and the Specimen Strike is full and sweet.
I am not a Vicky cent collector, but this looks like
a very special coin, congrats on that win, Bosox.

That was one of my favorite coins, struck in Copper nickel if I recall correctly. I was thrilled to pick up many coins at the Norweb auction in 1996 and though this was not
the most expensive or rarest it was a truly wonderful example and one of the prettiest examples of the province of Canada's first decimal coinage I had ever seen. I am
delighted to see it going into a wonderful home and escaped the excesses of the previous owner. Congratulations on a great purchase!

i would be more than pleased with that coin, the early pre confederation vicky large cents are my favorite of all coins and this coin is stunning (just like all your large cents)
in my opinion I think you have the most beautiful large cent collection not just on PCGS but world.
please check out my collection of large cents from 1858 - 1920 (under construction)

This coin is beautiful (and ex. King Farouk coin - Lot #2363)...

But we were discussing this one here, and we had some little doubts about a possible alteration:

I disagree with many of the numicanada comments. The marks which supposedly disappeared between the two PCGS photos are still on the coin. You have to tilt the coin in light to see them.

Being copper-nickel, this coin in-hand looks like the Heritage in-slab photos, silver-gray in color. It is only when you, again, tilt the coin in certain light do you see any of the reddish and white tones. The differences in color between the two PCGS photos are from differences in the lighting.

Before I bid, I sought out multiple opinions on this coin from some very knowledgeable people who saw the coin at lot viewing. All felt the coin had not been changed.

The photographic lighting effect was true of quite a few of the Cook coins. Many actually had been altered, but quite a few had not. You had to see them in hand to know the difference. I bought six coins in the auction. IMO only one of the six was messed with, the 1884 specimen, which was harshly cleaned.
