  R.E. 'Ted' Naftzger Jr.'s Coin Album

About this set: From the Experts at PCGS
The Naftzger collection of 1793 to 1857 large cents (Basic Set) is by far the finest ever assembled. It includes the only Chain cent ever graded MS67. It also includes the famous Atwater 1793 Wreath cent, graded MS67RB by PCGS. And there are numerous cents graded MS67RB, including a 1794. It took Naftzger 40 years to build his collection and the quality of the coins is consistently amazing.
