U.S. Matron Head Large Cent 1816-1835 Good
|Item Number: 19535|
|Early U.S. Mint cents were modeled on familiar British copper pennies of the day. That's why they were called "pennies" rather than the official "cent." |
The 1816-1835 "Matron Head" was the last coin engraving of Robert Scot, who designed some of the first 18th century U.S. coins.
