In the upcoming August 2022 Global Showcase Auction being presented by Stack’s Bowers Galleries, we will be selling an 1861 Original Confederate States of America cent. This copper-nickel example has the medallic alignment with the reverse rotated a few degrees clockwise. As we state in our description of the coin, all details are vivid and well-struck, as is common for this type of coin. While there are eight coins that have been graded finer at PCGS, we think that this Specimen-58 example has considerable eye appeal and is worthy of strong bidding.
Coins in Motion seeks to enable collectors, bidders, and consignors to accurately appreciate how Stack’s Bowers Galleries coins look in hand. Ultra-high resolution animations depict how luster moves over the coin’s surfaces, while the rotating motion allows for any possible imperfections to be revealed. Stack’s Bowers Galleries is proud to have acquired Coins in Motion. To view our YouTube Playlist dedicated to Coins in Motion, click here. Videos are added weekly.
