NCLT LARGE CENT PROPOSAL

Steve Pellegrini offers the following observation about the ongoing
Cent Survival debate:  "I agree with the economists mentioned in
E-Sylum v9#28 who observed that the day of the relevant cent is gone
for good. Bye. However, I would like to see the Mint striking a yearly
NCLT large cent in pure copper. Pure copper coins are extraordinarily
beautiful and if handled carefully & intelligently (no, not slabbed)
will either stay pristine or with some luck develop lovely patinas.
These large cents could be included in the Mint's regular annual sets.
My only caveat would be that the coins would have to be contemporary
and original - of obvious artistic merit. And no, no, no rehashed 18th
and 19th c. designs. Certainly no more buffaloes. There are now more
buffaloes looking out from various US coins than there ever were when
they were alive & breathing - even before we set out to kill 'em all."
