Catalog reference:

1851, United States. Copper Braided Hair Large Cent Coin.

Mint Year: 1851
Reference: KM-67.
Denomination: One Cent (Braided Hair)
Weight: 10.58gm
Material: Copper
Diameter: 28mm

Obverse: Bust of Lady Liberty with braided head left, wearing inscribed diadem. 13 stars around.
Exergue: LIBERTY – 1851

Reverse: Denomination in words (ONE CENT) within wreath.

Facing more negative public reaction, the Coronet cents were redesigned in 1835 by new Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht. This last major change to the coin updated the obverse by giving Liberty a slimmer, more youthful appearance. Minor tweaks continued through 1843, and the 1843 design prevailed through the end of mintage in 1857. Some 11 years after the large cent was discontinued, a mint employee coined several large cents dated 1868, almost certainly for sale as instant rarities to numismatists. Fewer than a dozen of these unofficial issues, struck in both bronze and copper-nickel, are known to survive.
