This week's Featured Web Site is Jon Alan Boka's Provenance Gallery Of 1794 Large Cents.
Arguably the most studied, written about and interesting of all US coins are the copper Large Cents produced between 1793 and 1857. They are also the coins with the most traceable lines of pedigree [prior stewardship]. This book evolved as an extension of an exhibit at the 2004 Early American Coppers Club convention in San Diego featuring all 58 collectible varieties of 1794 Large Cents. The coins were chosen based on their intriguing, singular pedigrees rather than condition...lineages extending to Mickley, Maris, Frossard, Hays, Zug, Prosky, Hines, Gilbert, Steigerwalt, Clapp, and many other noted collectors of the past.
