1854 Large Cent Classic Beauty for Your Type Set

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 31/08/12
I bought this coin for a type set collection. It was graded AU58 by A respectable grading authority. I like AU grades because they are very original showing details as minted, but more easily found and moderately priced than mint state (MS) coins. This is a neat cent because it is nearly the size of a modern Washington Quarter and was the last of the large size cents. It is a real beauty. When looking for your own, make sure the hair above the ear, the Liberty wording, and top surfaces of the wreath show minimal wear. Those are the key wear points for this coin.

These Braided hair cents have class,style and great detail. I think that they are a great investment. Plus they're are fun to collect. A lot of people I show these to didn't realize that one cent coins from this time period were so large,They usually very impressed. I'm glad that I started a collection of these fine coins of history.
