Yea I got it from ebay maybe 15 years ago Raw "MS60"
sent it to PCGS 2 years ago They disagreed. This is why if I'm spending over $75.00 on a coin now it has to be in a slab. In fact most of the coins I Buy now are slabbed

1857 marks the start of the large cents for the United States, and the start of the Half Cents as well.

The only other 1857 I've got is this nice original Liberty Seated dime. Crusty but solid VG+.

Love the Flying Eagle cents and Gobrecht Seated Liberty coinage - the plain and elegant mid 19th century designs do more for me than Barber and Morgan sorry.

And I believe we will start to see Large cents and Half Cents again soon.

The Tornesi is an interesting piece too - I am sure that King also had some stamps issued in the late 1850s (Ferdinand) and he considered himself a looker, so beautiful he made cancelling his face harshly on the stamps a priosnable offense!

Here is my sole 1857 submission, a very small but cute one.





A Maundy penny of Victoria - the strange thing about it, is that its only VF and fairly grubby, meaning it probably entered circulation for a short time!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
