1837 Liberty Head Plain Cord Medium Letters Young Head Design Large Cent PCGS Graded VF30
Description: A nice PCGS VF 30 copper 1837 Liberty Head with a young head design large cent or penny. The coin itself is better than the scan shows and has much of its details evident. The details of the coins are very distinct with wear commensurate with its grade. The obverse shows some wear to the cheek of lady liberty as well as the hair lines. However, you can still see the word LIBERTY but it also shows some wear. The rest of the coin shows wear but the details are still easily identifiable with the date still well preserved. The word one cent in the center of the reverse and the words United States of America are very distinct while the wreath has wear and lost quite a bit of its detail. The coin has wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. The coin is problem free and in original condition displaying a handsome patina. These coins were designed by Christian Gobrecht. Early US coins such as this are gradually getting difficult to find. Please carefully review scan presented as it is part and parcel of our description.
Size and Weight: Originally 10.89 grams of a copper and is ~28-29 mm in diameter. The coin has the plain edge design.
