Very important. Part I is rated A by Adams: "Newcomb's fabulous collection of early date cents—a landmark in the hobby, exceeding in breadth and quality anything auctioned before or since. Sale is also rich in choice early silver." Part II is rated A-: "Newcomb's superb late dates by Andrews numbers; 267 lots sold as one to Floyd Starr who later merged this set with the equally impressive late dates of Henry Hines." Amongthe most important large cent sales, and rarely offered with both PRLs.
