1839/6 Coronet Head Large Cent

Many varieties exist within this series, but none is as rare or appealing than the 1839/6 Coronet Head Cent. The overdate is bold and clear, making the pieces readily identifiable and adding to the allure of the variety.

From an unknown mintage, very few examples have survived in high grade, with even heavily circulated examples somewhat scarce. The finest known example is graded by PCGS as MS65 Brown and could easily fetch six digits when sold at auction, a rare feat within this series which is generally considered to be “common”.
