About This Set: From the Experts at PCGS The Naftzger collection of 1816 to 1839 large cents (Basic Set)is by far the finest ever assembled. Every coin is at least MS65 and most are the finest known. It took Naftzger four decades to build his collection and the tremendous, consistent effort shows in this fantastic set. About the Naftzger Collection Images and provenance are from the Ira & Larry Goldberg Auctioners and McCawley-Grellman Copper Specialists Pre-Long Beach Auctions, 2008-2009.
