Mint state (MS) and key date listed Coronet Large Cent values is for graded, certified and authenticated coins in PCGS or NGC holders. The rest are a sample of raw coin sell but this is not a guarantee your coin with the same date, mint, grade and holder will sell for this exact value.

A RD coin is going to have at least 90% original luster as struck by the mint and is the most valuable condition. The luster conditions only apply to mint state coins so any circulated coin will be designated BN.

Classic Head Large Cent Value Facts:

Date – Mint Rarity:

The Classic Large Cent series only lasted for five years and all are rare and valuable as they climb into the VG8 (Very Good) grades and up. You can still find a good deal on all dates in AG3 (About Good) and G4 (Good) grades.

The 1810 is the highest mintage at 1,458,500 and you can find these coins in good grades for less than $50 and less than $40 in AG3. The most rare date is the 1809 with a mintage of 222,867 and a value of at least $195 in G4.

Grade – Condition:

Note that when I mention a grade like G4 that means the coin is problem free – never cleaned, not pitted, or damaged in any way. If the coin has a “grainy” appearance or seems to have tiny holes, or scratches, or looks “pinkish” then it’s a problem coin and will sell for less than the values listed.

You also have three conditional factors that determine the value of a Classic Head Large Cent and they are: Red (RD), RB (Red-Brown), BN (Brown). A RD coin is going to have at least 90% original luster as struck by the mint and is the most valuable condition. The luster conditions only apply to mint state coins so any circulated coin will be designated BN.

VF (Very Fine) Classic Head Large Cents are worth over a thousand dollars and examples graded MS63 are worth $15,000 to $27,000 depending on the date and variety, but need to be certified by grading services like PCGS or NGC.

Varieties:

There’s a few of varieties for this series, and too many to go into to detail about, so I will mention the most popular and a couple values. I encourage you to consult a book on the subject to learn more about the varieties and the values.

If you want to collect varieties then it’s important to learn the name Newcomb. It’s the last name of a man named Howard Newcomb and he studied and classified large cents and the N of his last name is used to help classify the varieties. Some examples of this is N-23 or N-11.

1811/0 is a well known over-date variety and the value begins at $195 in G4 but choice examples can bring more value, the 1812 Large Date is another and it’s G4 value is $100.

Mint state (MS) and key date listed Braided Hair Large Cent values is for graded, certified and authenticated coins in PCGS or NGC holders. The rest are a sample of raw coin sell but this is not a guarantee your coin with the same date, mint, grade and holder will sell for this exact value.

Date – Mint Rarity:

Braided Hair Large Cent value is determined mostly determined by the rarity of the date. Low mintage dates are worth the most but it should also be noted that mintage figures for any date is what the mint recorded and not how many survived all the melting and losses to circulation. So Braided Hair large Cents are more rare than their mintage implies.

This series doesn’t have regular issue key dates so most are worth about the same value and they start out at $20 in G4 but can be bought cheaper sometimes. The G4 must be a problem free coin to bring that much. The 1857 Large Date is the key date and it’s worth $65 in G4.

The proofs of this series are extremely rare and worth thousands of dollars each, and there might still be some unidentified in a collection somewhere. So any candidates should be sent to a reputable grading services to be authenticated and certified.

This series doesn’t have a mint mark and were minted at the Philadelphia Mint.

Grade – Condition:

As pointed out before, Braided Hair Large Cents are all about the same price in G4, with 1857 Large Date being the exception, but the varieties are considered part of the series, more on their values in the next section.

Note that when I mention a grade like G4 that means the coin is problem free – never cleaned, not pitted, or damaged in any way. If the coin has a “grainy” appearance or seems to have tiny holes, or scratches, or looks “pinkish” then it’s a problem coin and will sell for less than the values listed.

You also have three conditional factors that determine the value of a Braided Hair Large Cent and they are: Red (RD), RB (Red-Brown), BN (Brown). A RD coin is going to have at least 90% original luster as struck by the mint and is the most valuable condition. The luster conditions only apply to mint state coins so any circulated coin will be designated BN.

The Braided Hair Large Cent value tends to begin an increase in EF40 (extremely fine) and AU (about uncirculated) they really take off. So an AU50 1847 has an estimated value of $90 and an 1854 in AU50 is $125 and that’s about the value range for non-variety examples.

Varieties:

There’s a large number of varieties for this series, and too many to go into to detail about, so I will mention the most popular and a couple values. I encourage you to consult a book on the subject to learn more about the varieties and the values.

If you want to collect varieties then it’s important to learn the name Newcomb. It’s the last name of a man named Howard Newcomb and he studied and classified large cents and the N of his last name is used to help classify the varieties. Some examples of this is N-23 or N-11.

The Braided Hair series has several varieties that include over-dates, slanted dates, tall dates, upright dates, large dates, small dates, petite head, 1839 Type 1840 just to name a few. The most valuable tend to be the over-dates like the 1851/81 that starts at $30 and can be valued at $300 in MS60, and the 1843 Mature Head, Large Letters can start at $25 but is worth at least $700 in MS60.

Mint state (MS) and key date listed Coronet Large Cent values is for graded, certified and authenticated coins in PCGS or NGC holders. The rest are a sample of raw coin sell but this is not a guarantee your coin with the same date, mint, grade and holder will sell for this exact value.

Coronet (Matron) Large Cent Value Facts:

Date – Mint Rarity:

Coronet Large Cent value is determined mostly determined by the rarity of the date. Low mintage dates are worth the most but it should also be noted that mintage figures for any date is what the mint recorded and not how many survived over the years. So Coronet Large Cents are more rare than their mintage implies.

The key date, besides some varieties, is 1823 that starts at $120 in G4, followed by the 1821, but most are worth about the same value and they start out at $20 in G4. You can often buy most dates a few dollars cheaper but look out for problem coins. The coin must be a problem free coin to bring that much.

The proofs of this series are extremely rare with less than fifteen known for most dates, and they’re worth thousands of dollars each. However there might still be some unidentified in a collection somewhere. So any candidates should be sent to a reputable grading services to be authenticated and certified.

This series doesn’t have a mint mark so all were minted at the Philadelphia Mint.

Grade – Condition:

As pointed out before, Coronet Large Cents are all about the same price in G4, with 1923 and 1921 being the exceptions, but as they increase in grade so do they in value.

Note that when I mention a grade like G4 that means the coin is problem free – never cleaned, not pitted, or damaged in any way. If the coin has a “grainy” appearance or seems to have tiny holes, or scratches, or looks “pinkish” then it’s a problem coin and will sell for less than the values listed.

You also have three conditional factors that determine the value of a Coronet Large Cent and they are: Red (RD), RB (Red-Brown), BN (Brown). A RD coin is going to have at least 90% original luster as struck by the mint and is the most valuable condition. The luster conditions only apply to mint state coins so any circulated coin will be designated BN.

The Coronet Large Cent value tends to begin an increase in EF40 (extremely fine) and AU (about uncirculated) they almost double in value. So an AU50 1836 has an estimated value of $200 and an 1823 in AU50 is worth $4,350 and that’s about the value range for non-variety examples.

Varieties:

There’s a large number of varieties for this series, and too many to go into to detail about, so I will mention the most popular and a couple values. I encourage you to consult a book on the subject to learn more about the varieties and the values.

If you want to collect varieties then it’s important to learn the name Newcomb. It’s the last name of a man named Howard Newcomb and he studied and classified large cents and the N of his last name is used to help classify the varieties. Some examples of this is N-23 or N-11.

The Coronet Large Cent series has several varieties that include but not limited to: Silly Head, Booby Head, 13 or 15 Stars, over-dates, large dates, repunched dates, misplaced dates, small dates, large dates, medium dates just to name a few. You can consult the list below for more details.
