Product description

Product Information
The 1838 Coronet cent is also called the Matron Head cent, because it features the head of Liberty with a coronet in her hair as she looks to her right. The coronet has the word “LIBERTY” inside its borders. Thirteen stars surround Liberty and her hair flows freely down her back. The date is placed at the bottom of the obverse side of the Matron Head cent. The reverse has a wreath with the denomination in the center with the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” surrounding the wreath along the border. Slight changes were made in the design, and the 1838 large cent had a more youthful appearance and lost some of the severity of earlier designs. Copper was used to make the 1838 Coronet cent, and it was minted in Philadelphia. Mintage for the 1838 large cent was over 6 million. Collectors will want to add the 1838 Coronet cent to their collection.

I write this "review" apearantly about a purchase I made. I have no clue as to wich aution eBay is refering. Long story short, so far, I have had no issues with the collectable items I have purchased. Each one is one of a kind and cannot be pigeonholed in a "product review" Ebay just doesn't understand. One-of-a-kind items such as unique collectable numismatic exonumia cannot be refered to as a "product"

I recently purchased a 1838 Coronet Cent, this piece has made
My coin collection a lot better. As of now it is the oldest coin in my
Collection, to me it is interesting wondering where all this coin has
Been and who might have once had possession of this exact coin!
