Description & Analysis

Cents dated 1844 are common in all grades up to Mint State brown. From this date forward through the end of large cent coinage in 1857, the design features remained unchanged. Only relatively minor die-punching varieties exist to enliven the series.

Eight die marriages are known for this date, with one of these (N-8) being a proof-only issue. By far the most popular variety is N-2, on which the first three numerals of the date were first punched inverted and then corrected. While plentiful, its appeal extends beyond the community of cent specialists, and choice examples bring a strong premium. The sole rare die marriage for 1844 is the proof-only N-8. One of the more common varieties, N-6, is illustrated.
