Before today's smaller cents were introduced, the U.S. mint struck cents that were larger than today's Native American, Presidential and U.S. Innovation dollars. The last was the Braided Hair large cent, issued 1839-1857. And this 1853 Braided Hair large cent is still About Uncirculated after nearly 170 years!

  • Last of the large cent series

  • 27.5 mm diameter
  • Designed by Christian Gobrecht
  • Obverse depicts Liberty with her hair held by beaded cords

  • Large cents like this saw modest mintages compared to today's cents. And thousands were melted down in 1857 to coin the new, smaller cents. Collectors eagerly seek those that survive, especially attractive ones like this. Add it to your collection before it's gone
