Description & Analysis

1823 is a relatively scarce date within the large cent series, though not truly rare. This date's mintage went unrecorded and was probably effected during 1824. Most sources haven't even speculated as to the number coined, but large cent authority John Wright suggested a figure in the hundreds of thousands.

Attributing 1823 cents is a straightforward matter; only two die marriages are known, and one's coin is either an overdate (N-1) or it isn't (N-2, illustrated). These are of near comparable scarcity, with this non-overdate variety bringing a slight premium.
