Massachusetts Copper Cent, Ryder 3-G, W6090, R2+. This coin has been authenticated and graded
by NGC as VF Details Scratches. Okay,
so you can look at the photos and see the scratches, but remember that my
supersize photos also supersize the scratches. In hand, the scratches are not that
visible, and plus that arc at the bottom of the obverse may in fact be a
planchet cut before the coin was struck.
Now the truly sad part: without those scratches, this coin is
CHOICE! Glossy rich dark chocolate
brown, bold details on both sides, and fantastic eye appeal. Too bad about the scratches, because
otherwise this one would be nearly perfect.
