Nearly as large as a half dollar and struck in copper, America’s early large cents saw lots of use. As a result, relatively few of these historic coins have survived in the desirable Very Fine condition available here. This consecutively dated 3-coin set of 1851-1853 Braided Hair cents is nicely detailed and shows Liberty with her hair in a bun – the last design of the series.

Struck in modest quantities at least 165 years ago from 1839-1857, Braided Hair coins were America’s last large cents. Thousands of these were melted down in 1857 for re-coining into new small-size cents introduced that same year. Large cents are an enduring legacy of America’s past and numismatic heritage – the coins that started America collecting. Don’t miss this opportunity to add a set of attractive Braided Hair large cents to your collection. Order now and SAVE off single coin prices!
