Description & Analysis

The first emission of cents for 1858 featured obverse dies taken from the hub Type of 1857 having Large Letters. This variety is easily recognized by the fact that letters AM of AMERICA touch at their bases.

There is not much distinction in availability between this variety and that having Small Letters. Values and populations are fairly similar, and both varieties are readily obtainable.
