     Large Cent: Braided Hair (1839 - 1857)

 

Large cents were the first coin minted in quantity for general circulation by the US Mint and they have been issued from 1793 through 1857. Braided Hair large cents were the last series of the large cents. The coin is slightly bigger than S.B. Anthony dollar and it made by 100% copper. Even though it's been 150 years, Braided hair large cents are still available in the market at very affordable price. And they have lots of varieties to collect.

Key Dates: 1857, 1856 Knob, 1846 Tall
