Gary's Personal Collection
Early Dates: 1793-1814 Cud Varieties

1794 S-62

A nice looking coin despite the minor rim bumps. It is a late die state with the obverse cud at k8-9. It is the letter edge variety and has choice color. The coin came from the Sam Thurman collection of cud large cents. He purchased it 1/10/92 from Bill Noyes. It will now reside in my collection for many years!


1796 S-110

A really nice looking cent. The reverse is very worn with few details. The obverse is nice. It is a LDS with the obverse cud at "TY". There are also several die cracks around the date and bust. This coin also came from Sam Thurman's collection. He bought the coin from Tom Reynolds 2/24/87.


1798 S-153

This is a solid early cent. It is a late die state with the obverse cud at k5 touching the bust. It too came from Sam Thurman's collection of cud varieties. He picked it up from Tom Reynolds 3/14/85.


1798 S180 1798 S-180 w/strong rev cud at "TATE"

Very tough coin R6-. Im going to call this one a VG7 net 4 AVG- for dents,dings,scrs etc. This is my first really rare early date. ex Stephen Chappen 5/19/09.


1798 S-187

This is one of my nicest early date cents. It is a late die state with the obverse cud at k2:30. The field near the cud also has a couple of arching die cracks that can be seen in the pics. Again, this coin came from the Sam Thurman collection of large cents. He purchased it from Pen Hall at Coins & Such 12/88. It will remain in my collection for a long time!


1800 S-197

Im not too knowledgeable about grading these earlies but I would call it Fine net VG. It has an obverse cud at "IB" and some lumps at the date. This coin was part of Sam Thurman's cud collection of large cents. It is the plate coin used for Sam's book "The Cud Book". It is listed on page 3 as LCC-1800-3.


1802 S232 LDS with rev cud

1802 S232 LDS with reverse cud at "ATE". Breen state VI. Obverse counterstamped P.W. Jr. I believe this is a unlisted counterstamp. It has really nice details probably close to VF and nice color and surfaces.


1802 S235 1802 S235 MDS with obv cud

1802 S235 MDS with obv cud at "RTY". The coin appears to have be struck on a tapered planchet or it may have been clogged with grease. ex Eric Fix 4/19/09; ex Sam Thurman 10/10/06; ex Len's Coins 7/11/91.


1803 S-245

Im not too knowledgeable about grading these earlies but I would call it a Good. It has an nice reverse cud at "RICA". This coin was part of Sam Thurman's cud collection of large cents. It is the plate coin used for Sam's book "The Cud Book". It is listed on page 5 as LCC-1803-5R.


1803 S-263 LDS cud below date

I would say this one has Fine details but is lightly corroded. Late die state with cud below date. ex Tom Reynolds.
