The S-79 reeded edge 1795 large cent was published in Bowers & Merena Coin World ads. They have the coin, now slabbed as G-4, on consignment and it will be auctioned in November at the Baltimore coin show. The slab is clear and reveals the all-important reeded edge. Word is among collectors that the coin will hammer for more between $200 and $300K.
