About This Set: From the Experts at PCGS The Naftzger collection of 1839 to 1857 large cents (Basic Set) is undoubtedly the finest ever assembled. Every coin is MS65 or better and most are MS66 or better. And all but a few coins are full Mint Red. 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.
