Type Set Addition 1852 Large Cent

| Mr. B Coins

I could not help myself. But, I felt safe.My wife and I got out of Chicago. I worked remotely from our place in Michigan. We had our second vaccination shot a week earlier.On the first 40 degree day, we decided to go for a drive.As luck would have it we drove into Holland Michigan. We ended up at the Holland Coin Shop. I had my mask on and there was no one else in the shop.I asked about a few items and then saw this 1852 Large Cent. I thought it would fit in my Type Set. The price was right so I pulled the trigger.I'm taking baby steps and making progress.Hope everyone is doing well.Mr. B
