|Make a wise investment in the 1851 Braided Hair Cent copper coin which is also a priceless souvenir to possess. Designed by Christian Gobrecht, this Braided Hair Cent is struck in pure copper. Moreover, this copper coin was minted between 1839 and 1857, making it one of the oldest keepsakes of mid 19th century America. Plus, on its obverse side, this Braided Hair Cent bears an image of Liberty wearing a coronet, surrounded by 13 stars representing the original colonies. What’s more, on its reverse, the 1851 Braided Hair Cent bears a continuous wreath surrounding the denomination with the official name of the country inscribed around the border.|
