About this journal

I collect 1816-1839 Large Cents in MS Brown by Newcomb variety. In trying to grasp the 1823 "Restrike" die progression(without diving into who made how many in what year), this is my belief! Feel free to agree or disagree.

FINALLY THE BEAUTIFUL PORTRAIT HAS A NAME

"Mrs. Thomas Leiper and Her Daughter, Helen Hamilton Leiper" as shown on Oil on Canvas, 1794 by Charles Willson Peale. Do you recognize the features in the little one's face or perhaps on her mom's face? She would have been roughly two years old in the picture, having been born on April 20th 1792.      After having grown up in Philadelphia, in 1814 she married Robert Maskell Patterson M.D. and had seven children. Philadelphia in 1792 was home to our first Mint. Mr. Patterson's dad was Rober

TRIBUTE TO THE LATE REV. DR. JAMES G.K. MCCLURE

I acquired for Dynasty Collectors' Cabinet  registry by private sale an 1828 N-3 MS64 Brown Middle-date Large Cent. This 1828 is among the finest known and was the best MS Brown Middle-date Large Cent from the over 3,000 coins collected by the Late Rev. Dr. James Gore King McClure. Heritage Auctions brought 800 of his coins to auction in June of 2016, with only six other MS Middle-date Large Cents being offered. I mention this to emphasize just how hard it is to find Mint State Middle-dates. NGC

Eric P. Newman coins in Dynasty Collectors' Cabinet

Eric P. Newman numismatist from age seven passed away this week. I never met him, only knew of him through his coins and currency auctions of spectacular selections. I was fortunate to have acquired six mint state Large Cents from these auctions which I understand, by estimates raised $72 million since 2013. He founded a coin museum by his name in 2006. Prior to that about 1959 he founded a numismatic educational society to advance our endeavors. He wrote many ground breaking research books on o

FELLOW NUMISMATISTS SAVE OUR HOBBY

BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE Upon opening www.Amazon.com and typing in the search bar large cent, I saw no fewer than twelve counterfeits offered for sale on the first three pages. The Secretary of the Treasury permission under Title 18 Part 1 Chapter 25 code 504 can only authorize these fake copies after their producer successfully makes a case that they are unduly restricted reproductions. The problem as I see it is a weakening of the laws that boarders on counterfeiting acceptance. Just about all

GUARD ANY COIN TYPE COLLECTION FROM COUNTERFEITS

Today's Matron Head Ladies watch their weight! I collect Matron Head large cents but my advice is for all. I suggest every numismatist purchase a pocket size (so small you could fit several in your pocket) LIHGHTHOUSE .01-100G digital scale or similar .1-500G from Amos Advantage.com($24.95 + $7.99 shipping). This little scale from Germany can do more to protect you from counterfeit purchases than you might imagine. First research your coin's birth weight. The Matron Head 1816-1835 varie

Did the Matron Head cent have an offspring?

Venezuela bound 1835 Large Cents By now most large cent collectors have herd something like half the 18 varieties of 1835 cent Newcomb die numbers are difficult to find. The chief suspect was Venezula. In R.W. Julian's story titled "Venezuela first to circulate U.S. coins", posted to numismaticnews.net on August 23, 2011; "In early 1835, through its New York consul, the Government of Venezuela asked Mint Director Samuel Moore if 100,000 U.S. copper cents could be obtained for shipment to th

1826 N-2 Large Cent

FRANK DEWITT ANDREWS IS THIS YOUR 1826 N-2? This is the question I would like to ask but instead ask the help of fellow ole' copper collectors, to help me decide. I am noticing the second letter S in STATES being rotated clockwise marginally along with the two Ts in STATES having their left arms broken and leaning on some 1826 N-6 reverses but not on others. Our founding father of Matron Cent varieties described in his 1881 54-page self-published pamphlet, what has since become known as his 1
