Every collection should contain at least one early large cent – struck in pure copper and nearly the size and weight of a half dollar! You can now own one of the last large cents. Your genuine Braided Hair large cent, issued over 150 years ago from 1839-1857, will come in our colorful, informative Showpak® holder.
Struck at the Philadelphia Mint in small quantities compared to modern mintages, Braided Hair large cents depict Liberty surrounded by 13 stars and recall the Mexican War, California Gold Rush and westward expansion on the Oregon Trail. These coins don’t meet industry grading standards, but are a popular, affordable way to add elusive older issues to a collection. Order this important piece of U.S. coinage history today!
