About This Set: From the Experts at PCGS
The Naftzger "With Varieties" collection of 1839 to 1857 large cents is most certainly the finest ever assembled. Every coin is MS65 or better and most are MS66 or better. It took Naftzger four decades to build his collection and the tremendous, consistent effort shows in this fantastic set.
