My Large Cent Collection

Coins | CoinStar08

These are all my large cents that I have collected so far. From top to bottom... 1803, 1835, 1854, 1828, 18??, 1848, 1847, 18??. I find these coins so interesting because they are pennies, but they are huge! The second photo is a 1835 half cent that I bought on eBay. It caught my eye because it was the first half cent I had ever really seen. I hope y'all enjoy!

Very nice collection! Mike B is correct. U. S. Coins are all called cents, not pennies. Derived from the the fact coin is one percent of a dollar, or one cent.

I really do like large cents, but don't have any. You can find some interesting coins on ebay and real bargains. I love the unusal stuff. Was thinking of starting a holed coin collection for fun. Looks like you have a large cent with holes. Thanks for posting. Really interesting coins.
