Coronet Head Cents
1822 1C MS

Description & Analysis

Cents dated 1822 are slightly scarce with respect to other dates from the 1820s and thus carry a modest premium.

While a whopping 14 die marriages are known for 1822 cents, none of them are sufficiently distinctive as to be sought by anyone but variety specialists. It is nevertheless worth reporting that the rare marriages include N-9 and -13, while N-14 is one of the great rarities for the entire Coronet Head series 1816-39. N-10 (photos) is fairly common.
