Hugh Bodell's R8 Quiz #128
Last March I went to a show that had been cleaned out of collectible old coppers. Many dealers said someone had bought all of their nice large cents from them the day before on early bird day. I found in a junk bag one that saved the show from being a total wreck for me. I paid for it ten bucks and a tank of gas.
Here is my consolation prize--the worst coin in my collection at my bank, and R8 quiz 128: What is the last year of cents with this star size? What is the last year of cents with this date size? What is this variety? In what order did these cuds develop on the die for this terminal die state piece? I found no appearances of this die state in any auctions--it's not even in the older edition of Grellman's book of late dates. How many of this state are listed in RFL's late date cud census appearing in Common Cents 3/11, the listing of EAC late date collections? Next week you'll see my nicest cent! Hugh Bodell
