Description: A nice ANACS VF 30 copper 1828 Liberty Head with a Matron Head design large cent or penny. This coin is of the large date variety. The coin itself is better than the photos suggest 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 very well. The rest of the coin shows wear but the details are still easily identifiable, just look at Liberty's head and the details of her face and hair with some wear to it and the word LIBERTY which is nicely preserved on the obverse. 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 but still well preserved. The coin has wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. The coin is problem free and in original condition displaying a handsome brown colored patina. These coins were designed by Robert Scott. 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.
